Abstract

Studies were conducted to evaluate the effect of enriched farm yard manure and fertilizer levels on yield and economics of aerobic rice, results showed that application of 125:62.5:62.5 NPK kg ha-1 recorded higher grain yield (53.54 q ha-1) and filled grain (111.86) but less unfilled grains panicle-1(12.83) recorded in application 75:37.5:37.5 NPK kg ha-1 which was on par with level 100:50:50 NPK kg ha-1 (12.26). Significantly higher 1000 grain weight (23.37 g) recorded in application of 100:50:50 NPK kg ha-1 which was on par with level 75:37.5:37.5 NPK kg ha-1 (22.78 g). Among the methods of application spot application of enriched manure recorded significantly higher 1000 grain weight (24.24 g) and grain yield (54.03 q ha-1) due to timely available of nutrients. Interaction of spot application of enriched manure with 125:62.5:62.5 NPK kg ha-1 has registered higher grain yield (60.58 q ha-1) and filled grains panicle-1 (128.75). Significantly higher 1000 grain weight (25.80 g) in spot application of enriched manure with 100:50:50 NPK kg ha-1. Higher gross returns (Rs. 90,870 ha-1), net returns (Rs. 65, 319.74 ha-1) and B: C ratio (1: 2.56) was observed in spot application of enriched manure with fertilizer level 125:62.5:62.5 NPK kg ha-1.
