Abstract:
A field trail was carried out at Crop Research Farm, Naini Agricultural Institute, Department of Agronomy, Sam Higginbottom University Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, (SHUATS), Prayagraj, (U.P.) during kharif season 2020 to study. “Effect of Row Spacing and Poultry manure on Growth and Yield of Finger Millet (Eleusine coracana L.)”. The experiment was done in randomized block design (RBD) with nine treatment replicated three times. The factor consist of Row Spacing (20× 10, 30×10, 40×10 cm.) and three levels of Poultry manure (2.0, 2.5, 3.0 t/ha) were taken into use. The result which appeared that application of T6 (30×10cm+3.0 t/ha poultry manure) recorded maximum plant height (72.91cm), leaf area (526.37 cm2), leaf area index (4.40), number of tillers/plant (7.20), plant dry weight (14.27g), number of fingers/plant (6.07), test weight (3.65g), grain yield (3.04 t/ha), stover yield (6.58 t/ha), biological yield (9.61 t/ha) and harvest index (31.89%). Whereas maximum relative growth rate (0.044 g/g/day) and crop growth rate (0.396 g/m2/day) was recorded with application of T2 (20× 10+2.5 t/ha poultry manure). Maximum gross return (121600), net return (84600), and B: C ratio (2.27) were recorded with application of T6 (30×10 cm+3.0 t/ha poultry manure).
