Abstract:

The field experiment on the Effect of Forchlorfenuron on growth and yield of rice (Oryza sativa L.) during Kharif season of Central India was conducted at Krishi Nagar Farm, Department of Agronomy, Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh) during Kharif 2018.The treatments comprising of forchlorfenuron at different doses were applied at panicle initiation (PI) stage through foliar spray @ 520, 1040, 1560, 2080, 2600, 3120, 3640 g ha-1 and untreated control (No foliar spray) in randomized block design with three replications. Among all the treatments growth parameters of rice (viz., plant height, number of tillers hill-1, dry matter accumulation) and yield attributes (viz., effective tillers hill-1, panicle length, panicle weight and sound grains panicle-1) were significantly maximum in plots receiving foliar spray of forchlorfenuron @ 3640 g ha-1. While the test weight of rice was not influenced significantly due to different treatments of forchlorfenuron. The foliar spray of forchlorfenuron @ 3640 g ha-1 gave highest grain and straw yield (4745 and 7290 kg ha-1) over untreated control (3080 and 5460 kg ha-1).
