Response of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) to levels and scheduling of nitrogen under south Gujarat condition


Author(s): Maitrik P Joshi, RM Pankhaniya and Nazir Khan Mohammadi

Abstract: A field experiment entitled “Response of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) to levels and scheduling of nitrogen under south Gujarat condition” was conducted on heavy black soil at the College Farm, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari (Gujarat) during the summer season 2016. The experiment comprising twelve treatment combinations were laid out in factorial randomized block design and replicated three times. The treatment consisted combinations of four levels of nitrogen viz. 60 kg N/ha (N1), 80 kg N/ha (N2), 100 kg N/ha (N3) and 120 kg N/ha (N4) and three scheduling of nitrogen viz. 50% at basal + 50 top dressing at 30 DAS (M1), 50% at basal + 50% top dressing at 45 DAS (M2) and 50% at basal + 25% top dressing at 30 DAS + 25% top dressing at 45 DAS (M3). The recommended dose of phosphorus @ 40 kg/ha was applied uniformly to all the treatment as basal in form of single super phosphate. Nitrogen was applied as per treatment in form of urea. Highest growth, yield attributes and yield of summer pearl millet can be obtained by fertilizing the crop with 80 kg N/ha 50% at basal + 25% top dressing at 30 DAS + 25% top dressing at 45 DAS.
