Abstract:
A study was conducted on foxtail millet to investigate the effect of Foxtail millet (Setaria italica) growth, yield and economics as affected by liquid bio-fertilizers and their mode of application at Research farm of Tirhut College of Agriculture, Dholi, Dr. Rajendra Prasad Central Agricultural University, Pusa, Samastipur, Bihar, India during Kharif, 2020. The experiment was carried out in randomized bock design with three replications using in various permissible combinations of 70%, 85% and 100% RDF with different mode of application of biofertilizer as seed treatment, soil application and combination of both. T1,100% RDF + Seed treatment with liquid biofertilizer (4-5 ml/kg seed) followed by soil application of liquid biofertilizer (7 liter, mix with 500 kg FYM and apply in furrows at sowing for one ha area) gave significantly higher grain yield, Straw yield and yield attributing character and growth character as compared to other treatment. The treatment combination with 100% RDF + Soil application of biofertilizer and 85 % RDF + seed treatment + soil application of biofertilizer were found at par with this treatment T1. These results indicate that inorganic fer Foxtail millet, inorganic fertilizer, biofertilizer, growth, yield, economics tilizers along with bio-fertilizers (seed treatment + soil application) proved to be useful in achieving the higher yield and net returns.
