A field experiment was carried out during Kharif -2016 at AICRP on Dryland Agriculture, University of Agricultural Sciences, GKVK, Bengaluru, Karnataka to study the effect of nitrogen and potassium levels on growth and yield of little millet (Panicum sumatrense) under Dryland Alfisols of southern Karnataka. The experiment was conducted using Randomized complete block design with factorial concept having three nitrogen levels and four potassium levels. Application of 40 kg N ha-1 (686 and 1243 kg ha-1, respectively) and 20 kg K2O ha-1(678 and 1221kg ha-1, respectively) recorded significantly higher grain and straw yield as compared to 20 kg N ha-1 (529 and 1042 kg ha-1, respectively) and 0 kg K2O ha-1(588 and 1116 kg ha-1, respectively). Similar trends were also documented in growth attributes.
Key words: Little millet, Nitrogen, Potassium, Yield.
