In addition to 10 ton compost, chemical fertilizer was applied @60:30:30 NPK kg/ha in all treatments. Compost was incorporated in the soil at the time of land preparation and all phosphorus and potash was applied at the time of maize planting. Splitting of nitrogen and time of its application was done to make eight different treatments and nitrogen was applied accordingly. The experiment was conducted in a RCB design with four replications in 6.0 m2 plots. The highest maize grain yield (5951 kg/ha) was produced by the treatment T2 followed by (5680 kg/ha) with the treatment T8. The lowest maize grain yield (4327 kg/ha) was obtained by Tl. Likewise, the highest finger millet grain yield (977 kg/ha) was produced by T6 followed by (906 kg/ha) with the treatment T2. The lowest millet grain yield (715 kg/ha) was obtained in the treatment Tl.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
