Abstract:
Proso millet is one of important minor millet grown in India. The crop is able to evade drought by its quick maturity. There is need to evaluate different proso millet genotypes. So, utilized different proso millet genotypes viz., DHPM-2769, GPUP-8 and DHPM-2164 to investigate higher grain and fodder yield at different fertilizer level and spacing. DHPM-2769, GPUP-8 and DHPM-2164 produced higher grain yield of 5661 kg/ha, 5381 kg/ha and 4497 kg, respectively at 22.50 x 10 cm spacing with 200% RDF (60:30:30::N:P:K). DHPM-2769 and GPUP-8 produced highest fodder yield of 65730 kg/ha, and 5940 kg/ha, respectively, at 22.50 x10 cm spacing with 200 per cent RDF (60:30:30::N:P:K) while, DHPM-2164 (5070 kg/ha) showed maximum fodder at 30 X10 cm with 200 & RDF. 22.5 X 10 cm spacing with 200% recommended dose of fertilizer gave highest gross and net returns found in DHPM-2769 (Rs 58028 and Rs 44914), DHPM-2164(Rs 45991 and Rs 32878) and GPUP-8 (Rs 55231 and Rs 42117). Among eighteen different factorial combination, DHPM-2769, GPUP-8 and DHPM-2164 recorded maximum (4.14:1), (3.94:1) and (3.28:1) B: C ratio at 200% RDF with 22.50 x 10 cm spacing.
