A Comparative Study of Direct Seeding Versus Transplanting Method on the Yield of Aus Rice
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of three modern rice varieties viz., BR1, BR14 and BR26 along with a local variety, namely, Hashikalmi grown under direct seeded and transplanted method. High yielding varieties produced significantly higher grain yield compared with local variety. A higher spikelet sterility was recorded for the local variety compared with modern varieties especially when grown under direct-seeded method. Methods of planting exerted a significant influence on the yield and yield attributes of aus rice. Transplanted rice gave higher yield than direct seeded rice for both local and high yielding varieties.
