Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during the monsoon season of 2016-17 at Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, RVSKVV, Gwalior (M.P.) to study the effects of crop geometry and sowing dates on growth and yield of pearlmillet. The growth characters viz. plant height (cm), number of leaves, number of tillers/plant, number of leaves/culm and dry matter production and yield and yield attributing characters tillers m-2, ear head length (cm), ear head girth (cm), test weight (g) and grain and strove yield (kg/ha) were influenced significantly on sowing date of 20th July. The varieties of pearlmillet also produced the significant difference in the growth character and yield attributes of Pearlmillet. The significant increase in all the growth character was recorded in the cultivar crystal Dhoom while the minimum were recorded in the Boss-65. The yield attributes were also follow the same trend as / growth characters and the maximum productive tiller-2, ear head length (cm), ear head girth (cm), test weight (g) and grain and straw yield (kg/ha) was obtained under the variety crystal Dhoom, which was followed by Big B, Ankur-045, 86M86 and the minimum was recorded in the variety Boss -65 and sowing date of 9 august of pearlmillet.
