Muhammad Bashir Ahmad, Khizar Hayat , Qamar Zaman and Muhammad Ilyas

Abstract:
Contribution of different factors responsible for the increase of millet production viz: improved variety, fertilizer, seed rate and method of sowing were determined in Kharif, 1996 and 1997 under the agro-climatic conditions of D.l. Khan, Pakistan. The investigations measured the average maximum yield gap between the improved practices and that of the farmer’s practices as 929 kg ha–1, showing an increase of 202.83 percent over that of farmer’s practices. The highest share was contributed by method of sowing, 24.77 percent; followed by improved variety, 24.42 percent, fertilizer, 22.84 percent and seed rate, 7.3 percent. The highest net return and Value Cost Ratio (VCR) of the Rs. 2255.34/ha and (1:5) respectively, were found for improved variety, followed by method of sowing as Rs. 2053.94/ha and 1:3.68 (VCR) respectively. The minimum net return of Rs. 682.84/ha was observed for seed rate.
