Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted at PG Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, VNMKV, Parbhani during kharif 2021-22. with an objective to study the response of different little millet (Panicum sumatrense L.) varieties to fertilizer levels. The experiment has been laid out in a split plot design with 3 replications and 09 treatment combinations. The main plot consisted of three varieties viz., DPLV-1 (V1), DPLV-2 (V2) and DHLM 36-3 (V3) and subplot consisted of three fertilizer levels viz., 30:15:15 NPK kg ha-1 (F1), 40:20:20 NPK kg ha-1 (F2) and 50:25:25 NPK kg ha-1 (F3). At regular intervals, data on the growth and yield parameters were collected and analyzed. The results revealed that variety DPLV-1 (V1) recorded the highest growth and yield parameters like plant height (91.50cm), number of functional leaves clump-1 (31.50), leaf area clump-1 (3.37 dm2), total dry matter accumulation clump-1 (6.58 g), grain yield clump-1 (2.89 g), test weight (2.44 g), seed yield (1014 kg ha-1), straw yield (2054 kg ha-1), biological yield (3068 kg ha-1) and harvest index (33.05 %). Among fertilizer levels application of 50:25:25 NPK kg ha-1 (F3) significantly recorded the highest growth and yield attributes like plant height (90.66 cm), number of functional leaves clump-1(31.78), leaf area clump-1(3.37 dm2), total dry matter accumulation clump-1(6.38 g), seed yield plant-1 (2.81 g), seed yield (1001 kg ha-1), straw yield (2032 kg ha-1), biological yield (3035 kg ha-1), harvest index (32.98 %).
