Abstract:
The present study was conducted at Regional Agricultural Research Station, Vijayapur during kharif 2018 and 2019 in medium black soil. The experiment was designed in a split plot design comprising four pearl millet hybrids as main plots (VPMH 7, VPMH 8, GHB 558 and 86M88) and three nutrient levels (100% RDF, 125% RDF and 150% RDF) in sub plots, replicated thrice. Pearl millet hybrids VPMH 8, 86M88 and VPMH 7 were better in growth compared to GHB 558. Growth parameters were statistically superior in 150% and 125% RDF compared to 100% RDF. Grain and dry fodder yield were higher in 86M88 (2285 and 5210 kg ha-1, respectively) and VPMH 8 (2255 and 4772 kg ha-1, respectively) than GHB 558. Nutrient level at 150% RDF has recorded higher grain and dry fodder yield, respectively (2367 and 5143 kg ha-1) and was on par with 125% RDF (2186 and 4931 kg ha-1). Higher gross and net returns were recorded by 86M88 (Rs. 34,275.00 and 21,488.00, respectively). RDF at 150% and 125% have recorded higher net returns and B:C ratio.
