Abstract

A greenhouse experiment was conducted in Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, University of Agricultural Sciences, Gandhi Krishi Vignana Kendra, Bangalore to study the effects of segregated and unsegregated urban solid waste drum compost on plant height, number of leaves, ear head weight, ear head length, 1000 grain weight, grain yield and straw yield in finger millet (Eleusine coracana L.) during kharif-2015. The results revealed that plant height, number of leaves, ear head weight, ear head length, 1000 grain weight, grain yield and straw yield and uptake content were significantly improved by the application of 100% NPK+ segregated urban solid waste compost (10 t ha-1) followed by 100% NPK+ unsegregated urban solid waste compost (10 t ha-1) as compared to the treatment which include only in inorganics.

Keywords: Segregated, unsegregated urban solid waste compost, growth, yield, nutrient uptake
