Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during zaid season 2021 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (UP) on sandy loam soil to investigate the effect of inorganic and organic sources of nutrient on growth and yield of pearl millet. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with seven treatments each replicated thrice. It was consisted of combination of two lavels of inorganic sources I1 - (50% RDN), and I2 – (75% RDN) and three levels of organic manure, O1 – (50% FYM), O2 – (50% Vermicompost), and O3 – (50% Poultry manure). The treatment combinations are T1: 50% RDN + 50% FYM, T2: 50% RDN + 50% Vermicompost, T3: 50% RDN + 50% Poultry manure, T4: 75% RDN + 50% FYM, T5: 75% RDN + 50% Vermicompost, T6: 75% RDN + 50% Poultry manure, T7: 100-40-40 kg NPK/ha. Report of study indicate that, among different nutrient levels the application of 75% RDN with 50% Poultry manure produced significantly superior plant height (165. 67cm) and plant dry weight (75.81 g). The significantly higher grain yield (3.18 t/ha), stover yield (6.39 t/ha) and harvest index (33.22%) were recorded with the application of 75% RDN with 50% Poultry manure compared to all other treatments.
