Abstract: Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) locally known as bajra is an important cereal due to its high nutritional quality and its adaption to dry environment. In the present study, we investigate the growth and yield of pearlmillet in relation to different fertilizer treatments at crop research area of SGT University, Gurugram (Haryana) during Kharif season, 2017 to evaluate the effect of cultivars and integrated nutrient management on test weight, yield stover yield and harvest index of pearl millet. Experiment was carried out with three cultivars namely, (Dev-9999, HB- 67 improved and HHB-197) as main plot with four nutrient doses viz. (Control, 75 % RD, 100% RD and 5t vermicompost+100%RD+Biomix) as sub plot treatments. Higher test weight (11.3g), grain yield (4091kg/ha) and stover yield (9636 kg/ha) was recorded with Dev 9999 follwed by HHB 197 and HHB 67 improved, while higher harvest index was recorded in HHB 67 improved (31.2) followed by Dec 9999 and HHB-197.
