Abstract:
During the zaid season of 2021-22, the experiment was conducted on finger millet at the crop research farm of Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences (SHUATS), Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh). There were three planting geometry treatments: 20 cm x 20 cm, 25 cm x 25 cm, and 30 cm x 30 cm, as well as three NPK levels: 75 percent, 100 percent, and 125 percent. The study used a randomized block design with nine different treatments and was replicate three times. I have studied with objective to work out the economics of treatment combinations. The results showed that gross return (105180.85 INR/ha), net return (74326.63 INR/ha) and B: C ratio (2.41) were recorded significant with spacing 20 cm × 20 cm along with application of 125% NPK /ha (T3). Therefore it is concluded that spacing 20 cm × 20 cm spacing at 125% NPK /ha (T3) this could be attributed to the larger plant population and number of heads per m2 with close spacing compared to broad spacing. Therefore proved to be an economically viable option to the farmer for getting higher profit.
