Abstract:
An experiment was conducted during Rabi 2018 at Agricultural Research station, Paramakudi in Ramanathapuram (Dt). The objective of experiment was to find out the suitable fertilizer level along with drought mitigation measures to increase the yield of Barnyard millet under rain-fed condition. Growth character of Barnyard millet is expressed in terms of plant height and the yield characters are expressed in terms of number of productive tillers, length of panicle, test weight, grain and straw yield. Split application of 150 % of RDF 99:49.5:30 NPK kg ha-1 (NK: 25% Basal, 75% in equal split at tillering & flowering) along with PPFM application synergistically increased the grain and straw yield of barnyard millet under rain-fed ecosystem. Application of PPFM is helpful in mitigating drought stress during crop growth period.
