Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, Bengaluru, during kharif 2014 on red sandy loam soil to investigate the effect of spacing and nutrient levels on growth and yield of finger millet. Experiment was conducted by using randomised complete block design with 3 replications and 8 treatments comprising of two spacings (45 X 45 cm and 60 X 60 cm) with three levels of NPK (50, 75 and 100 % RDF) compared with farmer’s method of guni planting (60 X 60 cm with only FYM) and UAS package of practice. Study revealed that at 30, 60 and 90 DAS, significantly higher plant height (31.20 cm, 78.29 cm, 90.80 cm, respectively), leaf area (1137 cm2 plant-1, 7184 cm2 plant-1 and 26322 cm2 plant-1, respectively), total dry matter (2.06 g plant-1, 10.58 g plant-1 and 20.62 g plant-1, respectively), RGR (0.422 g day-1 dm2 and 0.284 g day-1 dm2 at 30-60 days and 60-90 days interval, respectively), CGR (7.230 g dm-2 day-1 and 5.841 g dm-2 day-1 at 30-60 days and 60-90 days interval, respectively), NAR (0.0637 g day-1 dm2 and 0.0539 g day-1 dm2 at 30-60 days and 60-90 days interval, respectively) and seed yield (4166 kg ha-1) were recorded with spacing of 60 x 60 cm + 100 % RDF application.
