Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif of 2014, 2015 and 2016 at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station, Brahmavar, Udupi district, Karnataka, to study the economics of paddy cultivation in soil acidity and secondary nutrient management practices. The experiment was laid out in RCBD design with three replications and nine treatments involving different levels of lime applications and magnesium sulphate in comparison to package of practice as control. Economics of paddy cultivation in soil acidity and secondary nutrient management practices was studied for three years 2014, 2015 and 2016. Results over three years of experimentation clearly shows that significantly higher net returns and B:C ratio was obtained in treatment T4: 100% NPK + Lime application equivalent to 50% exch. Acidity + 30 kg magnesium sulphate and followed by treatment T5: 100% NPK + Lime application equivalent to 50% exch. Acidity + 40 kg magnesium sulphate.
