Soil and foliar application of nitrogen to rainfed jowar and bajra



Soil and foliar application of nitrogen to rainfed jowar and bajra



Journal of Maharashtra Agricultural Universities 7(3): 235-236



Jowar produced significantly more grain (59.3%) than bajra. Hybrid jowar responded significantly to N application. N at 30 kg/ha applied half through soil and half through foliar spray was significantly superior to full dose through soil. The responses were 787 kg/ha (67.2%) and 1251 kg/ha (106.8%), respectively, over control. Application of 60 kg N/ha either wholly through soil or half through soil plus half through foliar spray increased the yield over 30 kg N/ha whole through soil but was at par with half through soil and half through foliar spray. N use efficiency also increased with the application of 30 kg N/ha half through soil and half through spray (41.7 kg/kg N). Grain yield of bajra increased significantly with the application of 30 and 60 kg N/ha either applied whole through soil or half through soil and half through foliage. Both these methods were equally better and effective. N use efficiency of jowar (417 kg/kg N) was more than bajra (21.0 kg/kg N) at 30 kg N/ha level.
