Abstract:
A field experiment entitled “Performance of foxtail millet under different sowing windows and line spacing during rabi season” was conducted at Agronomy farm, College of Agriculture, Nagpur during rabi season of 2021-22. Foxtail millet var. SiA-3222 was grown on clay soil, medium in nitrogen, low in phosphorous and very high in potassium having pH 7.7. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with nine treatment combinations, replicated thrice. The treatments were consisted of three sowing windows viz; 42nd, 44th, and 46th Meteorological Week and three line spacings viz; 30, 45 and 60 cm. Yield attributing characters viz; length of panicle, grain weight plant-1 and 1000 grain weight along with grain and straw yield ha-1 were highest when the crop sown during 42nd MW. All above mentioned yield attributing characters were also higher in 60 cm line spacing but grain and straw yield ha-1 were highest in the line spacing 30 cm. The gross and net monitory returns and B: C ratio of foxtail millet were significantly higher in early sowing during 42nd MW and in closer line spacing of 30 cm.
