Abstract:
Finger millet is one of important staple cereal and it is rich in calcium. This gives great solution to bone related problems. The grain yield and fodder yield depends upon genotypes, optimum fertilizer and spacing. Out of three finger millet genotypes, DHFM-78-3 (5066 kg/ha) produced highest grain yield and significantly superior over DHFM-4-9 (4441 kg/ha) and DHRS-1 (3921 kg/ha). These genotypes were recorded maximum yield at 22.5 x 10 cm spacing (4831 kg/ha) which was statistically superior 30 x 10 cm spacing (4122 kg/ha). DHFM-78-3, DHFM-4-9 and DHRS-1 produced higher fodder yield of 9380 kg/ha, 9000 kg/ha and 8530 kg/ha, respectively at 22.50 x10 cm spacing and 200% RDF (60:30:30::N:P:K). The finger millet entry, DHFM-78-3 (Rs. 69800 and Rs. 46350) exhibited maximum gross and net returns in 22.50X10 cm and two hundred per cent RDF. When look in to different combinations, 22.50 X 10 cm spacing with 100% recommended dose of fertilizer gave highest B:C ratio found in DHFM-78-3 (3.12:1) and DHFM-4-9 (2.74:1) and DHRS-1 (2.57:1).
