Abstract

Results of a field experiment conducted duri:1g the dry season (June..September1996)
revealed that maximum rice grain yield (6823 kg ha-1 ) and net returns
(Rs.24937 ha-1) were highest due to application of 180 kg N ha-1• 35 day old
seedlings recorded the grain yield of (6619 kg ha· 1 ) and net returns (Rs.24157
ha-1) as compar~d t:> 25 Oay old seedlings (6070 kg ha-1 and Rs.21272 ha-1
) :espectively. Application of nitrogen in 5 splits recorded the grain yield of 6466
kg ha-' than ~he 4 splits (6223 kg ha-1). The maximum N uptake (154 kg ha-1
) was recorC:ed with 35 day old seedlings at 180 kg N ha-1•
