Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Effect of soil application of silicon on growth and yield attributes of rice (Oryza sativa L.) was conducted in Kharif season 2017-18. Soil application of silixol granules was given at the time of mid-vegetative, mid-reproductive and mid-ripening stages of rice. The experiment was arranged as randomized block design with four treatments which replicated thrice. Various growth parameters like Leaf area, photosynthetic rate, and SPAD values were evaluated at 15 days after silicon application in the target leaf and yield attributes like spikelets per panicle, filled spikelet percentage, test weight and grain yield per panicle were measured at harvest. The results revealed that all growth and yield parameters were influenced positively at mid reproductive stage of silicon application than vegetative and ripening stages.
