Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif 2017 at Tamil Nadu Rice Research Institute, Aduthurai, Thanjavur District Tamil Nadu to study the growth and yield parameters of mesta as influenced by varieties, and different fertilizers levels. The plant height at harvest stage varied significantly due to different genotypes and fertilizer levels. Among the genotypes, JRHS-1 recorded significantly taller plants (275.4 cm) than other genotypes. Similar trend was observed under basal diameter. The higher fibre yield of 18.63 q/ha was noticed with JRHS 1 which was higher than other genotypes. Application of 80:17.5:33.3 kg NPK /ha expressed taller plant height, maximum basal diameter which in turn enhanced higher fibre yield of 19.50q/ha and at on par with application of 60:13:25 kg NPK/ha (18.84q/ha). However, the benefit cost ratio was more with application of 40:8.7:16.5 kg NPK /ha (1.88) which was almost nearer to application of 60:13:25 kg NPK/ha (1.82). It was concluded that the genotypes JRHS 1 was produced higher fibre with application of 60:13:25 kg NPK /ha.
