Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Effect of sources and methods of zinc application on growth, yield and zinc use efficiency in Basmati rice (Oryza sativa L.)” was conducted at Crop Research Centre of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology, Meerut, during kharif season of 2017 with ten treatments viz. control (T1), Seedling treatment with 1% ZnO solution (5 min.) (T2), 5 kg Zn/ha through ZnSO4 (21% Zn) as soil application (T3), 0.5 kg Zn/ha through Chelated zinc (Zn EDTA) as soil application (T4), 7.5 kg Zn/ha through ZnSO4 (21% Zn) as soil application (T5), 1 kg Zn/ha through Chelated zinc (Zn EDTA) as soil application (T6), Foliar spray of ZnSO4 with lime (0.1% Zn solution (T7), Foliar spray of ZnSO4 with urea (0.1% Zn solution (T8), Foliar spray of ZnSO4 with lime (0.15% Zn solution (T9) and Foliar spray of ZnSO4 with urea (0.15% Zn solution (T10). Experiment was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications. Grain, straw and biological yield of rice crop was influenced by different sources and methods of zinc application and was recorded significantly highest with the application of 7.5 kg Zn/ha through ZnSO4 (21% Zn) as soil application (T5). Highest zinc use efficiency was associated with the same treatment, similarly, this treatment also gave the maximum nutrient (N, K and Zn) content and uptake by grain and straw. The next in the order best treatments were T3 (5 kg Zn/ha through ZnSO4 (21% Zn) as soil application) and T6 (1 kg Zn/ha through Chelated zinc (Zn EDTA) as soil application).
