A field experiment was conducted during Zaid season of 2022 at the Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (UP) India. To study the Response of Nitrogen and plant growth regulators on growth and yield of zaid finger millet. The treatments consist of Nitrogen 40,60,80 kg/ha and plant growth regulators Salicylic acid 40ppm, Benzyl Amino Purine 50ppm, Chlormequat chloride 200 ppm. There were 10 treatments each replicated thrice. During the experiment, the soil in the experimental plot had a sandy loam texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.8), had a  low level of organic carbon (0.35%) and had a low level of available Nitrogen (163.42 kg/ha), available Phosphorus (21.96 kg/ha) and available Potassium (256.48 kg/ha). Results revealed that the higher plant height (79.76 cm), number of tillers/plant (7.85/plant), plant dry weight (25.92g/plant), seed yield (3.25 t/ha), straw yield (4.81 t/ha) and Harvest index (40.34%) were significantly influenced with application of nitrogen 80 kg/ha + salicylic acid 40 ppm.

Keywords    finger millet, nitrogen, plant growth regulators, growth parameters, yield attributes.
