Growth and Yield of Rice (Basmati-385) as Influenced by Different NP Levels

Abstract:
In a field trial the effect of different levels of nitrogen and phosphorus on growth and yield of rice (Basmati-385) was studied at the Agronomic Research Area, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. The results indicated that number of tillers per hill were not markedly influenced by the application of different levels of NP kg ha–1 and all the treated plots produced same per hill tillers as that of control. The treatment F4 (100-80 kg NP ha–1) produced maximum panicle bearing tillers and maximum normal kernels were produced by the treatment F5 (120-100 kg NP ha–1). The various levels of NP significantly influenced the 1000-grain weight and paddy yield over the control. The treatment F5 (120-100 kg NP ha–1) is the most beneficial to obtain higher yield under the given conditions.
