Impact of Three Input Factors at Different Levels of Management on Yield Components and Yield of Basmati 385 Rice

Muhammad Yusuf, M. Maqsood, M. Ashraf and M. Ashraf Rathore


Impact of three input factors such as plant density tillage profile and fertilizer were studied on farmer`s field of Sadhoke, District Gujranwala during the year 1993 and 1994. The results of the experiments conducted both the years revealed that the mean highest grain yield of 4.95 t ha -1 was obtained when all the three input factors were adopted at recommended levels against 2.08 t ha -1 from farmer`s level of inputs respectively. The highest mean contribution was due to fertilizer 1.23 t ha -1 (42.4%) followed by plant density as 0.88 kgs ha -1 (29%) and tillage profile, 0.69 kgs ha -1 (21.9%). The mean highest net return and benefit cost ratio of Rs. 8998 and 2.7 : 1 respectively were found from recommended or researcher`s technology whereas the minimum net return was of Rs. 711 from that of farmer`s level of technology.
