Abstract:
During kharif season of 2020, a field experimental study was carried out to evaluate finger millet varieties and establishment methods under Prayagraj climatic condition at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P.). A Randomized Block Design was followed in all of the treatment combinations which were replicated thrice. Among three varieties (GPU 28, ML 365 and Godra OT) and establishment methods (line sowing, broadcasting and transplanting), treatment combination of transplanting + ML 365 recorded significantly higher plant height (106.52 cm), number of total tillers (267.75/m2), dry matter accumulation (1013.78 g/m2), grain yield (3.77 t/ha), straw yield (6.59 t/ha), biological yield (10.35 t/ha) and harvest index (37.27%), respectively. It also gave maximum gross returns (Rs. 1,31,963.80/ha), net returns (Rs. 97,824.77/ha) and B:C ratio (2.86).
