Abstract:

Present invitation entitled “Effect of weather parameters on pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) Cultivars under different sowing windows” was carried out during 2013-17 at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Solapur, Maharashtra State (India). The experiment was conducted in split plot design with three replications. Nine treatment combinations were formed considering different cultivars viz., V1 (ICTP-8203), V2 Mahyco Hybrid and V3 Dhanashakti and sowing windows viz., (S1) 2nd fortnight of June (25th June), (S2)- 2nd fortnight of July (27th-July) S3- 2nd fortnight of August (24th-August). Among the three pearl millet sowing window crop sown in second fortnight of July (S2) produced significantly higher grain yield (1711.2 kg ha-1), biomass yield (3562.6 kg ha-1), total monetary returns (Rs. 35145 ha-1), CUM (319 mm), (MUE) (5.2 Kg ha-1 mm), GDD (1958-22770days), total dry matter (901.7 g m-2 ), LAI (1.13 ) and RUE (1.98 g MJ–1 ) than other sowing dates. Among the genotypes Dhanshakti produced significantly higher grain yield (1574.4 kg ha-1), biomass yield (3192.3 kg ha-1) and total monetary returns (Rs. 31311 ha-1) than other cultivars.
