Abstract:
A Field experiment was conducted during kharif season 2020 at crop research farm (CRF), Department of agronomy SHUATS Prayagraj The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications to investigate the effect of foliar application of Iron and Zinc on yield and economics of Finger millet. The treatments consisted of ZnS040.2%, 0.4%, and 0.6%and FeS04 0.2% and 0.5% through foliar application whose effect is observed in Finger millet (var MR-1). Study revealed that the application of 0.6% ZnSO4+0.5% FeSO4 through foliar application was recorded highest grain yield (3.93t/ha) Stover yield (6.03) as compared to all treatments. The economic analysis clearly indicate that Maximum Gross returns (INR87573.33), Net returns (INR56639.08) and B:C ratio (1.83) was recorded with the treatment 0.6%ZnSO4 + 0.5%FeSO4 respectively.
