Abstract:

A field investigation was conducted during Kharif -2016 at AICRP on Dryland Agriculture, University of Agricultural Sciences, GKVK, Bengaluru, Karnataka to study the influence of nitrogen and potassium levels on plant water status, yield and economics of little millet (Panicum sumatrense) under rainfed condition. The experiment was laid out in Randomized complete block consisting of twelve treatments of different combination of nitrogen (3) and potassium (4) replicated thrice. Significantly higher relative water content (RWC) was maintained with application of 40 kg N and 20 kg K2O ha-1 (78.3, 73.2 and 46.8 %, respectively) at 40, 60 DAS and at harvest as compared to 20 kg N and 0 kg K2O ha-1 (63.3, 58.9 and 36.9 %, respectively). The maintenance of higher water in plant resulted in higher grain yield (730 kg ha-1), net income (₹ 20107 ha-1) and B: C ratio (2.30) with 40 kg N and 20 kg K2O ha-1 as compared to all other treatments.


Keywords: Grain yield, Little millet, Relative Water content, Economics.
