Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Response of Zinc and sulphur on the growth and yield of rice (Oryza sativa L.) Under sodic soil” was conducted during Kharif season of 2015–16 at Agronomy Research Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Narendra Nagar, Kumarganj, Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. The experimental field was well leveled having good irrigation and drainage facility and source of irrigation was tube well. Sixteen treatment combinations consisted of four Zinc level viz., 0 kg, 5 kg, 10 kg, 15 kg was kept and four sulphur levels viz., 0 kg 15 kg, 30 kg, 45 kg was kept in different plot. Then experiment was kept in Factorial RBD and replicated in three times. The soil type was a silt loam, sand 26.52%, silt 50.08%, clay 23.40%, pH 8.6, organic carbon 0.39 and EC 0.36 dsm-1, Available nitrogen 185.50 kg ha-1, Phosphorus 14.21%, Potassium 231.50 kg ha-1 Result revels that all the growth, yield attributes and yields were increased significantly under 15 kg Zn ha-1 applied. Number of shoot hill-1, Plant height (cm), and Dry matter accumulation (gm-2), Yield attributes, grain and straw yield (q ha-1) of Rice crop were significantly higher with sulphur applied at 45 kg S ha-1. The Zinc level at 10 kg ha-1 and Sulphur level at 45 kg ha-1 was found to be best suitable levels for obtaining the higher yield of Rice.


Keywords: Sulphur level, Zinc level, Yield and Dry matter accumulation.
