Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Naini Agricultural Institute, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P) in Zaid2021 to study the Effect of Different Variety and Spacing on Growth and Yield of Pearl Millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.). It was consisting of combination of three levels of Variety and three Spacing (30 cmx15cm, 45 cm x15cm and 60 cm x15cm). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with nine treatments each replicated thrice. The experiment results revealed that the growth parameters such as yield attributes are, plant height (192.1 cm), dry weight (1.17 g/plant), crop growth rate (22.52 g/m2 /plant), Relative growth rate (0.027) leaf area index (4.41) and Ear head length (29.72/plant) were found significantly higher with 45cm x 15 cm+ JBV-4. Maximum seed yield (2.51 t/ha) and Stover yield (6.30 t/ha) were significantly recorded with the application of 45cm x 15 cm+ JBV-4 and Maximum Gross return (Rs.87700.00/ha), Net return (Rs.64600.00/ha) and B: C ratio (2.79) were recorded in (45cm x 15 cm+V3) compared to all other treatments.
