YIELD, QUALITY AND NUTRIENTS UPTAKE OF PEARLMILLET AS INFLUENCED BY SOWING DATES AND PLANTING TECHNIQUES UNDER LEGUME BASED CROPPING SYSTEM

A.B. Kamble, H.M. Patil and C.B. Gaikvvad

Abstract

All the growth and yield attributes of pearlmillet during kharif season were found significantly higher due to normal sowing date (25thMW) than late sowing date (27 MW) during both the years. The normal sowing date registered significantly higher grain, straw and biological yield than early and late sowing dates. The yield attributes of pearlmillet (kharif season) were significantly increased with alternate row skipped planting technique than conventional and one row skipped after every two rows planting techniques. However; grain, straw and biological yield were significantly higher with conventional planting technique during both the years. The highest total uptake of N,1)20, and ISO by the plants was observed due to normal sowing date and with conventional planting technique crop during both the years.
