Field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2016-17 at the Research Field of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, JNKVV, Jabalpur to evaluate the influence of soil test based integrated fertilization on growth, productivity and quality of rice. Experiment was laid out in permanent plot with six treatments based on soil test values and targeted yield of rice which were replicated four times in RBD. Experimental soil was medium black having neutral pH, normal EC, low OC and available nitrogen, while medium available phosphorus and potassium. Maximum plant height, Number of tillers plant-1, harvest index of rice at different days was obtained under T6 and minimum in control. The integrated effect of the applied fertilizers significantly increased grain (5725 kg ha-1) and straw (7623 kg ha-1) yields in T6 and deviated by - 4.12% from higher targeted yield. Minimum grain and straw yields of 2817 and 4367 kg ha-1 were registered under control. Highest contents of in leaves were obtained under T6 and minimum in control.
