Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during kharif-2014 at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, UAS, GKVK, Bengaluru, on sandy loam soil. The experiment consisted of eight treatments laid out in randomized complete block design with three replications. Treatments consisted of two spacings (45 X 45 cm and 60 X 60 cm) with three levels of NPK (50, 75 and 100 % RDF) compared with farmer’s method of guni planting (60 X 60 cm with only FYM) and UAS package of practice. Significantly higher grain yield and straw yield (41.66 qha-1 and 60.86 q ha-1, respectively) recorded with spacing of 60 X 60 cm with 100 per cent recommended dose of fertilizers followed by spacing of 60 × 60 cm with 75 per cent recommended dose of fertilizers. Higher grain yield was attributed to increased growth and yield parameters such as, number of tillers hill- 1 (19.86), number of leaves plant-1 (41.07), leaf area plant-1 (20636 cm2) total dry matter production (42.70 g plant-1), number of productive tillers hill-1 (19.13), grain yield plant-1 (160.02 g plant-1) and 1000 grain weight (3.64 g). Similarly higher straw yield was attributed to higher plant height (108.50 cm), number of leaves plant-1 (41.07) and total dry matter production (42.70 g plant-1).
