Effect of tillage and moisture-conservation practices on productivity, water use and water-use efficiency of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) on light soils under dryland condition


, : Effect of tillage and moisture-conservation practices on productivity, water use and water-use efficiency of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) on light soils under dryland condition. Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 67(6): 232-236

In a field experiment during the monsoon seasons of 1989-90 in New Delhi with Pennisetum glaucum BK 560-230, the effects of deep summer tillage with and without the incorporation of farmyard manure and soil mulching on grain yield, water use and water-use efficiency were examined. Grain yield was affected by tillage practices only in 1990. The highest grain yield (2.25 t/ha) was obtained with no summer ploughing and lowest (1.52 t) with chiselling + deep summer ploughing + farmyard manure.
