a field experiment was conducted at the organic block, Instructional-cum-Research farm of Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat during kharif, 2015 taking traditional joha rice var. Badshahbhog as a test crop to evaluate the growth, yield, and quality. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. The experiment consisted of 10 (ten) different treatments. The soil of the experimental site was sandy loam in texture and acidic in reaction. The organic inputs as a whole enhanced the growth and yield attributes, grain and straw yield and quality parameters of scented rice. Among different organic inputs, enriched compost recorded the highest plant height (154.70 cm), LAI (3.91 and 3.53), LAD (111.50), grain and straw yield (2.94 and 6.09 t/ha, respectively) which were associated with highest number of effective tillers/hill (9.14), length of panicle (28.21 cm), weight of panicle (2.58 g) and test weight (13.03 g). The quality parameters viz. length of grain (7.18), protein content (8.31) and aroma intensity (4+) were found to be highest in enriched compost followed by banana compost. The study revealed that application of enriched compost and banana compost are beneficial as potash sources in organic cultivation of scented rice under agro-ecological situation of Assam.
