Pooled data of two years of on farm trial showed that Sahabagidhan paddy variety performed better than other two varieties. The higher plant height, number of tillers, panicle length, number grains per panicle, grain weight per panicle, grain yield and straw yield were recorded with Sahabagidhan paddy variety as compared to MTU-1001 and MGD-101. The gross returns, net return and B:C ratio were also higher in Sahabagidhan paddy variety. The pooled data indicated that there was increase of grain yield by 42.12% and straw yield by 30.53% over farmers practice variety MTU 1001.
