Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2015 at college farm, college of agriculture, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad to study the effect of various sources of zinc on yield, nutrient content and uptake by rice. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 12 treatments and 3 replications. The results of the experiment revealed that the grain (5355 kg ha-1), straw yield (6347 kg ha-1) was recorded highest in the treatment receiving RDF+ Soil application of bio zinc @30 kg ha-1 at harvest. The highest uptake of N, K, Zn was seen with the application of bio zinc@30kgha-1, phosphorus uptake was seen highest in RDF@120:60:40 kg ha-1. The results have revealed that the application of bio zinc and nano zinc fertilizers both as soil and foliar application have resulted in obtaining the yields and nutrient uptake and are on par with the conventional ZnSO4 application.
