Field Preperation :
Field should be prepared twice or thrice by ploughing and cross ploughing followed by proper puddling is essential so that weeds may be buried in the field.
Nursery Management and transplanting:
The rice variety tested under transplanting condition. The nursery has to be prepared following the standard methods. The seed rate of 35 kg ha-1 found to be sufficient for planting one hectare of area after planning seeds in nursery. The seeds should be covered from a thin layer of FYM, which will be helpfect for the proper removal of nursery before transplanting.
1. Field is prepared well by ploughing followed by puddling.
2. 10 t/ha FYM may be incorporated in the soil to obtained high yield potential.
3. 18 – 22 day old seedlings to be transplanted in 20 X 10 cms using 1-2 plants /hill.
4. The depth of planting should not exceed more than 2-3 cm.
5. The planting should be done between second to fourth weak of july to obtain the potential yield from the variety.
The herbicide may be used to avoid initial weed crop compettion. For this purpose, 1.50 Kg a. i/ha Butachlore or 1.00 kg a. i/ha Pendamethaline should be applied as pre emergence (3-5 day after transplanting) in moist field condition. One mechanical or hand weeding may be performed at 25-30 days after sowing. Fenoxaprop-p-ethyl @60-65g/ha or Cyhalofop buty 1 @ 80g/ha for grassy weed and Ethoxysal furon @ 15 g/ha or chloromuron ethyl+metasulfuron methyl @ 4g/ha for broad leave weed control may be applied at 15888-20 days after sowing/ planting.
100-120 Kg N/ha; 60 Kg P2O5/ha; 40 kg K2O/ha
Time of fertilizer application:
The whole quantity of phosphorous and potash and 50% Nitrogen should be applied as basal dressing in heavy soil. The remaining N should be top dressed in two equal splits at active tillering and PI stage of the crop. The basal applied fertilizer may properly be incorporated in the soil; otherwise applied N may be lossed through various means. Under light soils only 30 % N may be applied before transplanting and properly incorporated in the puddle field. The 40% of N needs to be applied at active tillering stage while remaining quantity of 30% may be applied at PI stage of crop.The treating of urea either with neem cake of neem extract materials enhanced the efficiency of applied N. thus; this technology should be preferred during kharif season. Potash may also be applied in two splits i.e 75% as basal and 25% at maximum tillering or PI stage of the crop.
The irrigation of 7 cm water after 3 days of disappearance of ponded water or continues submergence of 5+2 cm can be adopted for higher yield.
The need based and recommended plant protection measures should be adopted. The other cultural practices may be adopted similar as recommended for Kharif rice.
