Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2018 at Agricultural College Farm, Mahanandi to assess “Response of Finger Millet (Eleusine coracana L.) Varieties to Different Levels of Nutrients”. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with factorial concept (FRBD) having twelve treatments and three replications. Among different treatments higher growth parameters, yield attributes such as number of productive tillers per hill and test weight, yield except harvest index and economics were obtained by finger millet variety VR-847 i.e., V2 over other varieties and regarding fertilizer levels F3 i.e., application of 120-60-40 N, P2O5 and K2O kg ha-1. However, it was statistically comparable with the treatment F2 i.e., 90-45-30 N, P2O5 and K2O kg ha-1 for some growth parameters. But some yield attributing characters like numbers of fingers per ear head and harvest index was higher in the finger millet variety Vakula i.e., V3 and total number of grains per finger in the variety PPR-1012 i.e., V4 gives better results along with the treatment F3 i.e., application of 120-60-40 N, P2O5 and K2O kg ha-1. Whereas, harvest index and benefit: cost ratio was higher with the application of 60-30-20 N, P2O5 and K2O kg ha-1 i.e., F1 treatment.
