ABSTRACT

The results indicated that maximum yield of paddy was obtained from those plots which were transplanted on 20th July except 1997 where 5th August date gave the maximum but non-significant yield. Among the varieties Shaheen performed better than others. Straw yield decreased with the delay in transplanting irrespective of season. Maximum straw was produced when the lines/varieties were transplanted on 20th June followed by 5th July, 20th July and 5th August in all the years. Among the lines/varieties tested Shaheen produced the least straw.
