Abstract:
The experiment was conducted at the Instructional Farm of N. D. University of Agriculture & Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad (U.P.) during Kharif season of 2015-2016. The experiment comprises ten treatments viz. 100% NPK (150:60: 40: kg ha-1), 100% NPK+ 75% S through SSP, 100% NPK+ 100% S through SSP, 100% NPK + 125% S through SSP,100% NPK + 75% S through Phospho Gypsum, 100% NPK + 100% S through Phospho Gypsum, 100% NPK + 125% S through Phospho Gypsum, 100% NPK + 75% S through Sulphur Bentonite, 100% NPK + 100% S through Sulphur Bentonite and 100% NPK + 125% S through Sulphur Bentonite replicated thrice in Randomized Block Design. Rice variety Sarjoo-52 was taken for experimentation. The data revealed that growth parameters viz. plant height, no. of tillers per running meter and leaf area index were found significantly superior over other treatments with the application of 100% NPK + 125% S through SSP. The maximum benefit: cost ratio was obtained in plot treated with 100% NPK + 100% S through SSP followed by 100% NPK + 125% S through SSP, respectively.
