The field experiments were conducted in the kharif seasons of 2013-2014, 2014-2015, and 2015-2016 at the research farm of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bhandara (Sakoli) and Zonal Agricultural research Station, Sindewahi. The experiments were laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications and eight treatments. Higher number of effective tillers (390.0 m-2) observed in T2:- Row spacing 20cm x plant-to-plant spacing 10 cm at both the locations. The pooled mean of grain yield at two location and three seasons revealed that the row spacing of T2- 20 cm x plant-to-plant spacing 10 cm (3376 Kgha-1) was highest over all other treatments and it was par with T1. The highest GMR, NMR and B: C ratio has recorded in T2 followed by treatment T1. Sowing of drill rice at row spacing of 20 cm and plant to plant spacing of 10 cm (T2) was highest in grain yield (3376.49 kg ha-1), GMR, NMR and B:C ratio (1.91) over other treatments and it was at par with 20x15 cm drilling of rice with grain yield (3305.46 kgha-1) GMR,NMR and B:C ratio (1.86).
