SPECIAL TIPS FOR PEARLMILLET CULTIVATION

For obtaining higher yields, maintain a population of 1, 00,000 plants/acre.

  • General fertiliser dosage recommended for rainfed area is N: P: K 32:16:12:8 kgs/acre. However, for irrigated areas, the recommended fertiliser dosage is N: P: K 32:16:12 kgs/acre. 50% of nitrogen should be applied as basal dose at the time of sowing and the balance between 30-35 days.
  • Since Pearl millet is grown in light soils, application of DAP is important because it remains in the soil for a longer period of time.
  • Dose of DAP: 50kg DAP as Basal dose+20kg Urea as top dressing after 20-25 days of sowing.
  • Complete all operations like weeding, interculture and top-dressing with urea, before 40 days.
