ABSTRACT

 

A field experiment was conducted at College of Agriculture, Vijayapur during kharif 2021 to study the “Effect of different organic nutrient management practices on growth attributes of pearl millet”. The experiment was laid out in complete randomized block design with 12 treatments and replicated thrice comprasing of different levels of FYM (2.25, 2.5 and 5.0 t ha-1), vermicompost (1.25 and 2.5) and foliar spray of jeevamrutha @ 10% and 20% compared with recommended package of practices (50:25:10 NPK kg ha-1 + 2.5 t FYM ha-1). The results revealed that the soil application of FYM @ 5 t ha-1 + foliar spray of 20% jeevamrutha at 45 DAS recorded significantly higher  soil organic carbon (5.38 g kg-1), EC (0.28 dS m-1 ), available potassium status (422.2 kg ha-1) and  available micro nutrient status (iron and zinc) (3.90 and 0.53 ppm) in soil. However, higher available nitrogen status (183.0 kg ha-1) of soil was recorded in treatment that received nutrients through recommended dose of fertilizers and higher available phosphorus status (36.40 kg ha-1) of soil was recorded in treatment (T3) with soil application of vermicompost @  2.5 t ha-1+ foliar application of 20% jeevamrutha at 45 DAS.

Keywords    Pearl millet, FYM, Organics, Jeevamrutha, Vermicompost.
