Author(s): M Hima Bindu, S Hemalatha, NV Sarala and B Vajantha
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2021-22 on sandy loam soils of dryland farm at S.V. Agricultural College, Tirupati, Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University, Andhra Pradesh in foxtail millet to study the effect of organic nutrient management practices. The experiment was laid out in split-plot design with three main plots and five sub plot treatments replicated thrice. Main plot treatments consisted of three sources of manure viz., Recommended dose of N through farmyard manure (M1), Recommended dose of N through vermicompost (M2) and Recommended dose of N through poultry manure (M3) and sub plot treatments consisted of five foliar applications viz., Water spray (S1), Vermiwash @ 5% spray (S2), Panchagavya @ 3% spray (S3), Humic acid @ 0.5% spray (S4) and Seaweed extract @ 0.3% spray (S5) allotted to sub-plots. The experimental results indicated that application of recommended dose of nitrogen through poultry manure or vermicompost along with foliar spraying of 3% panchagavya or 0.3% seaweed extract twice at 30 and 45 DAS significantly influenced the growth and yield attributes.
