Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Performance of finger millet (Eleusine coracana L. Gaertn.) under integrated nutrient management practices” was conducted at Agronomical research farm of Birsa Agricultural University, Ranchi during Kharif 2016 to study the effect of integrated nutrient management practices on nutrient uptake, yield of finger millet and post-harvest availability of nutrients in soil. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 10 treatments replicated thrice. The soil of experimental site was low in available nitrogen (232.47 Kg/ha), medium in phosphorus (14.30 Kg/ha) and potassium (131.84 Kg/ha). Result reveled that total uptake of NPK by the crop was higher with application FYM (10t/ha) + Biofertilizers (Azospirillum brasilense + Bacillus spp. + Psuedomonas flurosence @ 20 g/kg seed each) + ZnSO4 (12.5 kg/ha) + Borax (5kg/ha) + 100% RDF and was followed by application of FYM (10 t/ha) + Biofertilizers (Azospirillum brasilense+ Bacillus spp. + Psuedomonas flurosence @ 20 g/kg seed each) + ZnSO4 (12.5 kg/ha) + Borax (5kg/ha) + 75% RDF. Available nitrogen, phosphorus were found highest with application of FYM (10 t/ha) + Biofertilizer + ZnSO4 (12.5 kg/ha) + Borax (5kg/ha) + 100 % RDF whereas available potassium was found non-significant.
