Abstract:
The field experiment conducted to study the impact of phosphorous and silica application on growth and yield of rice in submerged condition. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with four levels of phosphorous (0, 25, 50 and 75 kg ha‑1) and four levels of silica (0, 50, 100 and 150 kg ha-1) replicated thrice. The highest straw and grain yield (56.0 and 42.75 q ha-1 respectively) of rice obtained by sole and combine application of phosphorous @ 75 kg ha-1 along with silica @ 150 kg ha-1 and influenced significantly. The maximum numbers of tillers and panicles as well as plant height was recorded by application of phosphorous @ 75 kg ha-1. Silica application @ 150 kg ha-1 noticed to be increasing tillers, panicles and plant height. Thus application of phosphorous @ 75 kg ha-1 along with Silica @ 150 kg ha-1 is effectively improved growth and yield of rice.
