Evaluation of pearlmillet genotypes under moisture conservation practices in eroded soil under rainfed condition

Author(s):

PK Rajput, AK Katiyar, Yogesh Kumar and Hemant Kumar

Abstract:

Three varieties of pearlmillet were tested under three moisture conservation practices during kharif 2018 and 2019 at Soil Conservation and Water Management Farm, Kanpur. Variety 'Krishna-834' provided the highest yield with substantial benefit over 'Anand' and 'Krishna-4311' varieties. One weeding and hoeing + organic residue mulch @ 4 t ha-1 on soil surface at 25 DAS gave the highest growth, yield attributes, grain yield and net return but lowest splash loss as compared to ridging and furrowing as well as one weeding and hoeing practices. Interaction between varieties and moisture conservation practices was found to be non-significant.
