Abstract

An experiment was carried out at the net house of the Department of Agronomy, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh using four seedling ages - 30, 45, 60 and 75 days, for transplant rice during July to November 1995 in transplant Aman (T. Aman) season and during November 1995 to May 1996 in Boro season. The highest grain yield was obtained from 45-days old seedlings in both seasons. Regression models prepared for T. Aman and Boro seasons separately could explain the yield variations 77.1% and 68%, respectively due to seedling age.
