Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Enhancing the performance of basmati rice (Oryza sativa L.) through fly ash and nitrogen management” was conducted during the kharif season of 2018 at Research Farm, Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo, Bathinda (Punjab). The experiment was laid out in split plot design with combination of three levels of fly ash (control, fly ash @ 10 t ha-1, fly ash @ 20 t ha-1) in main plots and four levels of nitrogen (40 kg N ha-1, 50 kg N ha-1, 60 kg N ha-1  and 70 kg N ha-1) in sub plots, replicated thrice. Among the fly ash levels, application of fly ash 20 t ha-1 resulted in significantly higher growth, yield attributes and grain yield of basmati rice than control and fly ash @ 10 t ha-1. The application of 70 kg N ha-1 resulted in significantly higher growth, yield attributes and grain yield of basmati rice than other nitrogen levels. Fly ash @ 20 t ha-1 with 70 kg N ha-1 recorded maximum growth and productivity of basmati rice, which was significantly higher over all other treatments, but it was statistically at par with fly ash @ 20 t ha-1 and 60 kg N ha-1.
