A field experiment was conducted in Randomized Complete Block Design with six replication on rice variety DR-82 at Agriculture Research Institute Dokri. It is clear that best result of paddy grain yield 11.05 kg/plot, 5525 kg/ha depicted T2 (Transplanting with green manuring with fertilizer rate 90-60-0 kg/ha). Where as lowest yield was obtained in T4 (Transplanting without fertilizer and green manuring).
