Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rainy (kharif) season of 2017 in Split Plot Design with three replications at Crop Research Centre of Dr. Rajendra Prasad Central Agricultural University, Pusa, Bihar. The treatments consist of four moisture regimes in main plots and four zinc levels in sub plots. The result showed that plant height (110.40 cm), no. of tillers/plant (360.91), LAI (5.17), SPAD value (39.38), panicle length (24.62 cm), no. of spikelets/panicle (84.40), grain yield (33.14 q/ha), were found to be maximum with I1 moisture regime which were significantly superior over I3 and I4 but was statistically at par with I2. With regard to zinc levels plant height (109.82 cm), no. of tillers/m2 (357.06), LAI (5.08), SPAD value (39.21), panicle length (24.29 cm), were found maximum with Z3 which was significantly superior over Z1 but was statistically at par with Z2 and Z4. No. of spikelets/panicle (84.41), grain yield (32.57 q/ha), were found maximum with Z3 which was significantly superior over Z1 and Z4 but was statistically at par with Z2.
