The effect of fertilizer and weed management on finger and foxtail millet productivity under marginal environments

Season
2021-2022

Main Objective

To determine yield gains emanating from good agricultural practices on small-grained cereals.

Specific objectives are to evaluate

  • The effect of three fertilizer rates on yield of finger and foxtail millets
  • The influence of three weed management on the growth and yields of millets.
  • The impact of three (3) salinity levels of irrigation water on the yield of millets.

Experimental design and treatments

Experimental design: Strip-split plot

Replications: 3

a. Vertical factor: Water salinity level (SAL)

  • 0, 6 and 10 dSm-1

b. Horizontal factor: Weed management (WE)

  • 3 times, two times and once

c. Sub-sub-plot factor: Fertilizer level (FERT)

  • NPK: 0:0:0; 25:18:20; 50:36:40; 75:54:60

d. Both crops have the same layout in each salinity level
