Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at ICAR- Krishi Vigyana Kendra, Vijayapura University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during Kharif - 2019 to study the Production potentiality of various nutri - millets under Northern Dry Zone of Karnataka. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design having four replications. There were five treatment involving five small millets viz., Foxtail millet, Barnyard millet, Proso millet, Kodo millet and little millet. The different small millets were evaluated for growth, yield and yield parameters viz., plant height, ear length, grain yield and straw yield. Among different small millets, foxtail millet was recorded significantly higher plant height (112 cm), ear length (18 cm), grain yield (17.29 q ha-1) and straw yield (3.56 t ha-1) compared to little millet (93 cm, 14.99 cm, 14.92 q ha-1 and 2.03 t ha-1, respectively), However which was on par with barnyard millet (109 cm, 17.27 cm, 15.97 q ha-1 and 3.15 t ha-1, respectively). Among different small millets, foxtail millet has recorded higher gross returns (47253 ₹/ha), net returns (31717 ₹/ha) and benefit cost ratio (3:04). Whereas, little millet shown the lesser gross returns (40609 ₹/ha), net returns (25073 ₹/ha) and benefit cost ratio (2.61).
