Effect of Different Tillage Practices on Growth, Yield and Yield Contributing Characters of Transplant Amon Rice (BRRI Dhan-33)

Md. Shahidur Rahman, Md. Asraful Haque and Md. Abdus Salam    

Abstract: The experiment was carried out at the field laboratory of Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture, Mymensingh, during amon season (July to October, 2001) to study the effects of different tillage practices on growth, yield and yield contributing characters of BRRI Dhan-33. The crop was grown under supplemented irrigation condition. The soil was calcarious grey belonging to Sonatola series of old Brahmaputra flood plain. The treatment of this study comprised of power tiller with 1, 2, 3 and 4 passes at 7 and 15 cm depth and 4 passes with country plough at normal depth. The 4 passes at 15 cm deep ploughing by power tiller showed the highest yield of grain (4.95 t ha-1) and straw (5.89 t ha-1) which was associated with higher leaf area index (LAI), crop growth rate (CGR), net assimilation rate (NAR), total dry matter (TDM), leaf numbers/hill, plant height, number of total and effective tillers, panicle length, number of filled grains/spikelets/panicle and with lower number of non-bearing tillers/hill and sterile spikelets/panicle. The lowest values of all parameters were found in 1 pass with power tiller at both 7.5 and 15 cm depth. Though 4 passes with country plough at normal depth and 3 passes with power tiller at 15 cm depth showed statistically identical results of 4 passes with power tiller at 15 cm depth in respect of yield performance, this treatment (4 passes with power tiller at 15 cm depth) gave the highest yield practically.
