A field experiment was conducted at Central Farm, Agricultural College and Research Institute, Madurai, Tamil Nadu to study the performance of unpuddled rice under late receipt of water for contingent rice plan of kharif season in Periyar Vaigai Command. The study was evaluated in Split plot design with three replications and treatment consisting of two date of sowing (July first and second fortnight) assigned in main plots and three varieties viz., ADT 48, MDU 5 and CO 51 under two method of planting (Direct seeded Rice (DSR) and UnPuddled Transplanted rice (UPTR) in sub plots. The observation on growth parameters, yield and yield attributes were recorded and statistically analyzed. The variety CO 51 was raised under direct seeded condition was recorded the higher growth attributes, yield and yield attributes which was on par with unpuddled transplanting of CO 51 rice variety. The lower yield was obtained from unpuddled transplanting of ADT 48. Hence, the results revealed that rice variety CO 51 either sown or transplanted under unpuddled condition on first fortnight of July is the promising option for obtaining higher yield followed by MDU 5 rice variety.
