Growth and productivity of rice crop as influenced by crop residue incorporation under rice-wheat cropping system

Author(s):
Gurjinder Singh and Balwinder Singh Dhillon
Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during May 2018 to April 2020 at Agricultural Research Farm of Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo, Bathinda. The experiment was carried out by incorporating kharif crops viz., rice and rabi crop viz., wheat residues in combination followed by application of recommended NPK fertilizer dose. There were four treatments in randomized complete block design with four replications. Application of wheat straw to rice results in higher growth attributing characters namely plant height, LAI, number of effective tillers hill-1, panicle length, number of grain panicle-1, grain yield and straw yield. It may be concluded, from the results of the experiment conducted for consecutive two years that incorporation of wheat and rice straw could be advantageous in increasing crop yield. The findings will hopefully encourage farmers for residue incorporation as a means of disposal instead of burning or removal.
