Effect of organic and inorganic fertilizer on growth and yield of paddy cv gr 11

The trial with three replications and six treatments was laid out in Randomized Block Design to assess the performance of different organic and inorganic fertilizer on growth and yield of paddy crop (Variety GR 11) during Kharif season. Different doses of fertilizers were applied to all the plots except untreated control. Application of 50 % N through RDF + 50% N through vermicompost recorded higher growth attributes like plant height was 42.2 cm and 118.1 cm, No. of tillers per plant was 8.7 and 12.1 at 45 DAT and at harvest time respectively, panicle length (22.3 cm), grains per panicle (128.0), 1000-grain weight (19.7 g) and grain yield (4.97 t/ha.) and straw yield (5.77 t/ha.) of rice variety GR 11. The data clearly revealed that the yield obtained with treatment T5 (50% RDF + 50% N through vermicompost) was recorded significantly higher growth as well as yield attributes than all other treatments.
