Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2015 at Soil Conservation and Water Management Farm of C S Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur. The experiment consisted 12 treatment combinations of 3 soil moisture conservation practices viz. M1: Farmers practice, M2: Riding and furrowing and M3: Organic mulching @ 4 t ha-1 25 DAS and 4 sorghum hybrids viz. V1: Suraj, V2: Virat, V3: Hi-tech 3201 and V4: Ratna-40 in factorial randomized block design with three replication. The results of experimental revealed that Organic mulching @ 4 t ha-1 25 DAS and 4 sorghum hybrids highest found in plant height, stem girth, dry matter accumulation number of days to panicle initiation, complete panicle emergence, number of days to crop maturity, panicle length (cm), panicle girth (cm), weight per panicle (g), number of grains per panicle and 1000-grain weight (g). It was followed by ridging and furrowing producing. Among hybrids, Ratna-40 produced highest found in plant height, stem girth, dry matter accumulation number of days to panicle initiation, complete panicle emergence, number of days to crop maturity, panicle length (cm), panicle girth (cm), weight per panicle (g), number of grains per panicle and 1000-grain weight (g). It was followed by Hi-Tech 3201 under rainfed condition of central Uttar Pradesh.
