Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted at Agricultural College and Research Institute, Killikulam, TNAU, Tamil Nadu, during late Pishanam season (November - March) of 2015 - 2016, to study the effect of zinc and green leaf manuring on yield parameters and yield of rice. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design replicated thrice using rice ADT (R) 45 as a test variety. The yield parameters like number of productive tillers hill-1, panicle length (cm), panicle weight (g), number of filled and ill filled grains panice-1, sterility percentage and test grain weight were recorded. The treatment which receives, 100% RDF + GLM @ 6.25 t/ha + ZnSO4 @ 12.5 kg/ha as basal + Foliar spray of ZnSO4 @ 1.0% recorded the higher yield parameters and yield of rice. However it was at par with the application of 100% RDF + GLM @ 6.25 t / ha + ZnSO4 @ 12.5 kg / ha as basal + Foliar spray of ZnSO4 @ 0.5%.
