Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at SMOF (SHUATS Model Organic Farm), Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Allahabad, (U.P.) during Kharif-2020. The soil of experimental site was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.1), EC (0.41 ds/m), available N (225 kg/ha), available P (19.50 kg/ha) and available K (92 kg/ha). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design and having ten treatment consisted of Organic manures, viz. Farm Yard Manure (75% N), Farm Yard Manure (100% N),Vermicompost (75% N), Vermicompost (100% N) and growth regulators viz., Sea weed extract (625 ml/ha/spray), Humic acid (2.5 lit/ha/spray). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design which are replicated thrice and effect was observed on Manipuri variety of Bajra. The result shown significantly higher effect on Number of Effective tillers(3.27), Earhead length (34.23 cm),Test weight (11.11 gm.), Grain yield (4.86 t/ha) and Stover yield (7.94 t/ha) were recorded significantly higher in T8Vermicompost (100% N) + Sea weed extract. Maximum Gross return (INR 146597.4/ha), Net return (INR 103987.44/ha) and B:C ratio (1.50) were recorded in application of Vermicompost (100% N) + Sea weed extract.
