Abstract


Field experiments were conducted at the Zonal Agricultural Research Station, NARP., Shenda Park, Kolhapur (Maharashtra) during Kharif season of three years of 2009 to 2011 to study the response of finger millet varieties to different levels of fertilizer on crop yield and soil properties. The results revealed that, on shallow and lighter type of soils in IX rainfall situation under sub-montane zone of Maharashtra, for obtaining highest grain and straw yield, the long duration varieties should be fertilized with the recommended dose of fertilizer (60:30:00 kg NPK ha-1). The medium duration varieties showed good response to application of 75 per cent of recommended dose
