INFLUENCE OF ROTATION, USE OF ORGANIC AND IN ORGANIC SOURCES OF NUTRIENTS ON YIELD, NUTRIENT UPTAKE AND ECONOMICS OF FINGER MILLET (ELEUSINE CORACANA (L.) GAERTN)Pavankumar Goudar, B. K. Ramachandrappa, M. N. Thimmegowda2and Mudaligiriyappa
A field experiment was conducted at All India Co-ordinated Research Project for Dryland Agriculture, UAS, GKVK, Bengaluru during Kharif 2013. Among different treatments, application of FYM at 10 t ha-1 has recorded significantly higher grain yield, net returns and B:C (1761 kg ha-1, Rs.21280 ha-1and 2.18) compared to application of maize residues at 5 t ha-1 (1365 kg ha-1 Rs. 11,528ha-1 and 1.52). Among two rotations, finger millet-groundnut rotation has given significantly higher grain yield, net returns and B:C (1783 kg ha-1 Rs. 21,150 ha-1 and 2.11) over mono cropping of finger millet (1343 kg ha-1 Rs. 11,658 ha-1 and 1.59 respectively). Among different nutrient sources, application of organic matter with 100 % RDF has given significantly higher grain yield, net returns and B:C (2741 kg ha-1 Rs. 36,934 ha-1 and 2.75 respectively) compared to absolute control (277 kg ha-1 Rs. -5212 ha-1 and 0.48 respectively).
