Yield Performance of Three Aromatic Fine Rice in a Coastal Low Land

Md. Enamul Kabir , Md. Harun Ar Rashid and Md. Sarwar Jahan

Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted in a coastal low land to observe the performance of three aromatic rice varieties namely Begunbitchi, Chinigura-1 and Kalijira at the Field Laboratory of Agrotechnology Discipline of Khulna University during aman season 2003. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design with five replications. Thirty-three days aged seedlings were transplanted with 3 seedlings/hill. Fertilizers were applied at the rate of 50, 35 and 88 kg N, P and K h-1, respectively. The yield and yield components varied significantly among the varieties except 1000-grain weight. Chinigura-I gave the highest grain yield (2.30 t ha-1) followed by Kalijira (2.08 t ha-1) and Begunbitchi (0.85 t ha-1). The highest grain yield of Chinigura-I was obtained due to its longer panicle, number of spikelets per panicle and higher harvest index. The yield of Chinigura-I in the coastal low land was almost similar to that of national average yield in Bangladesh for this variety (2.40 t ha-1).
