Influence of organic and inorganic nutrient source on growth, growth indices and yield of pearl millet
Author(s): Manjeet and Parveen Kumar
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Research Area, CCSHAU, Hisar during Kharif 2016 with the objective to study the influence of organic and inorganic nutrient source on growth, growth indices and yield of pearl millet. The experiment was conducted in split plot design with three replications. In the main plot there were manurial treatment viz. control, biomix, vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1 and vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1 + biomix and nitrogen levels viz. 70, 80, 90 and 100 per cent RDN were kept under subplot. The growth parameters viz. plant height, LAI, total number of tillers plant-1, leaf area plant-1, and grain, stover yield differed significantly among different treatments. Among the manurial treatments, significantly higher tiller conservation index was recorded over control, but it was at par with biomix and vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1. Among different nitrogen levels the differences in the TCI was found non-significant.
