Yield and yield attributes as affected by different sowing dates and different maturity classes cultivar on direct seeded rice
Field experiment was conducted to appraise the effect of different sowing dates and different maturity class’s cultivars on yield and yield attributes of the direct seeded rice during the Kharif season of 2014 and 2015, at Central Soil Salinity Research Institute, Karnal. Experiment comprised of four sowing dates viz. 10th June, 25th June, 10th July, 25th July and different maturity classes cultivar viz. Arize 6129 (Early), Arize 6444 (Mid) and Pusa 44 (Long). Data on yield related parameters of direct seeded rice were recorded. Results revealed that direct seeded rice sown on 10th June with early maturing cultivar Arize 6129 proved to be the best for obtaining maximum grain yield and yield attributes such as number of panicles per m2 , 1000- kernel weight and paddy yield.
