Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during kharif season of 2015 and 2016 in split-plot design with four establishment methods namely wet-direct seeded (Wet DSR), direct seeded aerobic (DSR-aerobic), direct seeded on furrow irrigated raised bed (DSR on FIRB) and transplanted (TP) in main plots and eight rice cultivars (Pant Dhan 23, Pant Dhan 24, Pant Shankar Dhan 1, Pant Shankar Dhan 3, Pusa Basmati 1, Pusa 1121, Govind and Pant Dhan 26) in sub-plots taking 3 replications. Result revealed that highest grain and straw yield was recorded under TP in both years. The increment in grain yields over wet DSR and DSR-aerobic were 7.63 and 11.29 % and 10.75 and 15.64 % in 2015 and 2016, respectively. The maximum gross return (Rs. 83972 and 84552 ha-1) and net return (Rs. 50636 and 51216 ha-1) was obtained in TP while the benefit cost ratio (1.80 and 1.71) was found maximum with DSR-aerobic during 2015 and 2016. Highest grain and straw yield was obtained with hybrid variety Pant Shankar Dhan 3 for both years except 2015 where Pant Dhan 24 recorded maximum straw yield. The maximum gross return (Rs. 85218 and 90685 ha-1) and net return (Rs. 55108 and 60575 ha-1) was recorded in variety Pant Shankar Dhan 3 in 2015 and 2016. Growing rice hybrid Pant Shankar Dhan 3 under conventional transplanting can give higher grain yield.
