Minor millets are highly nutritious and even superior to rice and wheat in certain constituents. However, realizing the nutrient composition of these grains and their importance in human diets, they are now considered as nutri – cereals. Water deficit is one of the most common environmental stresses that affects growth and development of plants. The use of chemicals and bioregulators is the quickest and surest way of boosting crop production. In shortage water conditions,0.5% FeS0<sub>4</sub>+ 0.5% Urea foliar spray to mitigate the water stress and increase the yield also. The present investigation was conducted in the Centre of Excellence in millets, Athiyandal, Tiruvannamalai district during <em>kharif</em>’ (September, 2015-January, 2017) through foliar spray of micronutrients combination used to increase the Varagu yield under rainfed condition.
