Abstract

A field experiment was conducted in the zinc and sulphur deficient soil to study the effect of green manure (GM) and inorganic Zn and S fertilizer combinations on yield of a short duration rice variety (ADT 36). Application of NPK (100:50:50 N:P 2O 5:K 2O kg ha −1), Zn as ZnSO 4 (5 kg Zn ha −1) and S as gypsum (50 kg S ha −1) coupled with green manure (Sesbania aculeataat 10 t ha −1) resulted in significantly higher grain yield (5627 kg ha −1).
