Effect of Agronomic Practices on the Production of Green Fodder, Hay and Seed Yield of Rice

Abstract: The effect of rice leaf cutting on the production of green fodder, hay and seed yield of BR10 rice was evaluated. Tallest plant, maximum number of non-effective tillers hill-1, longest panicle, maximum seed panicle-1 and highest seed yield were obtained from without leaf cutting when the crop was transplanted using two seedlings hill 1 with plant spacing 25 x 15 cm2. Whereas leaf cutting treatment having two seedlings hill 1 with spacing 25 x 15 cm2 produced the highest number of effective tillers hill-1. Spacing 25 x 10 cm2 also produced statistically identical seed yield ha 1 with no cutting treatment having two seedlings hill 1 with 25 x 15 cm2. The highest forage yield and dry matter yield of forage were observed from leaf cutting treatment of six seedlings hill 1 with spacing 25 x 10 cm2. The highest cumulative hay yield was found in cutting treatment, two seedlings hill 1 with spacing 25 x 20 cm2 which was statistically similar to six seedlings hill 1 with spacing 15 x 10 cm2. Average forage yield was 2.81 t ha-1. It is possible to harvest rice forage from transplant aman rice like BR10 without decreasing grain or seed yield and length of leaf cutting may be up to 10 cm at vegetative growth stage.
