Effects of soil temperature and certain weather parameters on the growth and yield of ragi (Eleusine Coracana)
Keywords:Soil temperature, Air temperature, Sunshine hours, Accumulated heat units, Hall yield.
The influence of soil temperature, air temperature and sunshine hours on the growth and yield of ragi (Eleusine coracana, Geartner) (Var. CO II) was evaluated. The results of analysis indicated that soil temperature at crop growth and flowering stages significantly influenced the yield of grain and straw of ragi, the best fit being at 15 cm depth, Soil temperature at 30 cm depth was higher than the mean air temperature.
Accumulated heat units correlated positively with grain and straw of ragi. Sunshine hours also correlated positively with yield of grain and straw.
