Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at Agriculture Research Farm, School of Agriculture, Suresh Gyan Vihar University, Jagatpura, Jaipur, Rajasthan during kharif season of the year 2018.The materials of the present investigation comprise of promising bajra hybrid viz.,“RHB-177” that was regarded with eight different treatments, laid out in a randomized block design (RBD) with three replications. It was perceived from the present research that among- - different nutrient management treatments, T7 treatment that constitutes of 40% RDF+25% FYM+25% +Vermicompost+10% Biomix was found to be significantly far superior in respect to plant height (187.96 cm), dry matter accumulation (7285 kg ha-1), total tillers per metre row length (27.43), grain yield (1905 kg ha-1) and stover yield (5442 kg ha-1). As the economics of the present study is concern, again treatment T7 (40% RDF+25% FYM+25% Vermicompost+10% Biomix) proved to be exceptional among the rest of the treatments as it recorded maximum net returns (Rs.26405 ha-1) along with B: C ratio (2.14).
