Abstract:

An experiment was conducted, for three consecutive years to evaluate the effect of seed rates on yield and economic traits in Bold as well as Fine seeded rice variety in terms of Direct-Seeded technique. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block design and replicated thrice. Study concluded that Pooled means of seed rates at Sakoli indicated that sowing of 75 kg seed ha-1 (3458 kg ha-1) was expressively higher in grain yield but was at par with sowing of 50 kg seedha-1. As well as pooled mean at Sindewahi indicated that Variety Sye-2001 was higher in grain yield (3631 Kg ha-1) of Rice than PKV HMT. The pooled mean of grain yield over three seasons and two locations revealed that variety Sye-2001 was significantly higher in grain yield over PKV HMT Variety. Among seed rates, 75 kg seedha-1 recorded significantly higher grain yield over other seed rates but was at par with 50 kg seedha-1. Interaction effect showed the variety Sye-2001 was significantly highest in grain yield at 75 kg seedha-1 and PKV HMT variety at 50 kg ha-1. Also the highest GMR, NMR and B:C ratio was recorded in Sye-2001 with 75 kg seed rate ha-1 and in PKV HMT at 50 kg Seedha-1.
