Influence of varieties and nitrogen levels on weather health indices of foxtail millet [Setaria italica (L.)]


Author(s): G Ravindranadh, M Sree Rekha, B Venkateswarlu and K Jayalalitha

Abstract: Based on the hypothecation that there are differences in weather health indices among the foxtail millet varieties in response to nitrogen fertilizer, a field experiment was conducted on sandy clay soil of Agricultural College Farm, Bapatla, during kharif, 2018 with four foxtail millet varieties (Prasad, Narasimharaya, SiA 3156 and CO-2) and four nitrogen levels (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg N ha-1). Results indicated that the variety CO-2 accumulated the highest GDD, HTU and PTU, while variety Prasad accumulated the highest HUE, HtUE and PtUE for both grain and stover yields. The highest GDD, HTU, PTU and HUE, HtUE and PtUE for both grain and stover yields were recorded with 60 kg N ha-1 application.
