  • RKMP serves the generic information related to rice cultivation in more than 2500 Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs).In other words this information is not context specific and may be useful to extension workers cutting across the states (For example - principles of land levelling).
  • You will appreciate how we tagged different information (content) heads, to make your browsing effortless!
  • You may go through these RLOs using any of the following methods:
    1.  Search for a specific information object by typing a key word/ phrase. You will get to see several related links. By clicking on the links you will be directed to the content page.
    2.  While going through the links, you may feel appropriate to cross navigate to other information related to your search. Then simply, you click on the tags (terms) that appear below. You will be happy to see all the information in a sequence of upload.

Stage 2 - Tillering of rice plant



1. This stage extends from the appearance of the first tiller to the maximum tiller number is reached.

2. Tillers emerge from the auxiliary buds of the nodes from main stem or other tillers and displace the leaf as they grow and develop.

Stage 1 - Seedling of rice plant

1. The seedling stage starts right after emergence and lasts until just before the first tiller appears. During this stage, seminal roots and up to five leaves develop.

2. As the seedling continues to grow after the first Prophyll leaf, two more leaves develop. Leaves continue to d


Stage 0 - Germination to Emergence of rice plant

 1. Germination is defined as the appearance of white tip coleoptile and subsequent growth of it.

2. Seeds are pre-germinated after soaking for 24 hours and incubating for another 24 hours, after pre-germinate the radicle and plumule protrudes through the hull (sprouting).


Vegetative Growth Phase of rice plant

 Vegetative Growth Phase includes Germination, Seedling, Tillering and Stem elongation stages.



Growth Phases of rice plant

The growth of the rice plant is divided into three phases: 


1. Vegetative (germination to panicle initiation);

2. Reproductive (panicle initiation to flowering);

3. Ripening (flowering to
