Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Shenda Park, Kolhapur during kharif season of 2016 to study the response of finger millet to foliar nutrition on growth and yield on the Entisols. The experiment was laid out in Randomized block design with three replications and eight treatments of foliar sprays viz., Absolute control, General Recommended Dose of Fertilizers, Water spray, Urea spray @ 2 %, DAP spray @ 2 %, Ca(NO3)2 spray @ 2 %, KNO3 spray @ 2 % and 19:19:19 spray @ 2 %. The foliar sprays were applied at 30 and 50 DAT. Studies revealed that the growth characters, yield attributes and yields of finger millet differed significantly due to foliar spray treatments of different fertilizers. Amongst the different foliar treatments urea spray @ 2% had recorded significantly highest values which was at par with 19:19:19 but superior over DAP, Ca(NO3)2 and KNO3 sprays applied @ 2%. The treatment GRDF had recorded significantly highest plant height (112.27 cm), number of tillers (4.25), chlorophyll content at 60 DAT (1.86 mg g-1), number of fingers (7.67), finger length (10.48 cm), 1000 grain weight (3.53 g), grain yield (26.47 q ha-1), straw yields (36.21 q ha-1) and BCR (1.54) over all other foliar spray treatments and absolute control.
