Abstract:

The on farm trial was carried out in farmers fields in five locations of Khammam District of Central Telangana Zone in three consecutive seasons of kharif 2015, 2016 and 2017 by District Agricultural Advisory and Transfer of Technology Centre, Khammam belongs to Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University, Hyderabad to study on evaluation of drum seeder in rice under different spacing’s. Four treatments were imposed to find out proper spacing with drum seeder in direct sowing rice viz., T1-30 cm spacing, T2-25 cm spacing, T3-20 cm and T4- Transplanting under delayed condition. The investigation result on pooled basis showed that the maximum plant height (83.2 cm) and more no of tillers (405.3) m-2, Significantly maximum number of Panicles/ m-2 (387.8), Length of Panicle (18.3 cm), number of grains per panicle (186.7), Straw Yield (10102 kg/ha), Harvest Index (40.6%) and grain yield (6945 kg/ha) were recorded with 30 cm spacing drum seeder (T1) than other treatments followed by T2- (25 cm spacing).The experimental results revealed that the significant influence on both growth and yield attributes as well as on economics of rice. The lowest plant height (73.3 cm), plant stands (25.0) and less number of tillers (309.3) per unit area and grain yield (5370 kg/ha) were recorded in farmers practice (T4) due to delayed practices no of tillers was very low as well as poor plant stand per unit area than other treatments.
