Abstract:

The study on level of adoption regarding nutrient management practices in rice crop conducted during the year 2016 on a sample of 160 farmers drawn from eight randomly selected villages of four randomly selected blocks of Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir revealed that none of the respondents had applied the recommended dose/s of SKUAST-Kashmir. A substantial percentage of the respondents had applied 75-100 per cent of recommended dose/s of Urea (58.13 %,) DAP (42.40%) and MOP (52.50%) respectively at last puddling. It was also found that 51.25 percent and 40.62 percent of them had applied 75-100 per cent of 1st and 2nd top dressing of urea in the rice crop respectively. It was further noticed that only 36.88 per cent respondents had applied 50-75 percent of the recommended dose ZnSo4 in rice crop. The data further revealed that a majority of the respondents applied Urea, DAP and MOP at the recommended time. So far as 1st and 2nd top dressing of Urea is concerned, almost half of the respondents applied it at the right time in the rice crop.
