ABSTRACT

Studies to evaluate the effect of different planting patterns and seed densities on the growth and yield performance of rice bean were conducted during 1997-98. The planting patterns were 60 cm apart single rows, 90 cm apart double row strips (30/90), 60 cm apart ridge sowing and 90 cm apart bed sowing with seeding densities of 20, 25 and 30 kg ha -1. The results revealed that different growth and yield parameters were significantly influenced by different planting patterns and seed rates. The treatment combination of S2P3 (25 kg ha -1 seed under 60 cm ridge sowing) produced the highest grain yield of 1191.0 kg ha -1 and differed significantly from rest of all the treatment combinations.
