Abstract:

Rice the most important staple food in India. Declining soil fertility and high soil acidity is the major concern for low production in North–East India. The present study focuses on the effect of organic manures and liming on post harvest grain quality parameters and protein concentration of upland rice in North Eastern Hill Region of India. The experiment was conducted on mid-altitude hill terrace with Two factors as: Factor A: N0- Control, N1- 100% RDN through inorganic means, N2- 100% RDN through FYM, N3- 50%RDN through FYM + 50% RDN through Vermicompost (VC), N4- 50% RDN though FYM + 50% RDN through Poultry manures (PM) and N5- 50% RDN though FYM+50%RDN through Pig Manures (SM). Each level of factor A was alternated with factor B: L0- No Lime and L1- Lime (400kgha-1).50% FYM + 50% SM had maximum grain yield (3.98 t/ha) that is 1.5%, 7.2%, and 9.6% higher over 50% FYM + 50% PM, 50% FYM + 50% VC and 100% FYM respectively. 50% FYM + 50% SM was 2.9% significantly high in protein concentration over 50% FYM + 50% VC. There was no promising effect of lime application on post harvest grain quality, protein concentration and yield of upland rice may be due to under application of lime. Therefore, it can be concluded that organic manure practices can be recommended to the farmers of Meghalaya and lime must be applied based on soil test value and not blanket recommendation.
