RELATIVE PERFORMANCE OF SOIL: FYM CONDITIONEDAND NEEM BASED PRODUCT COATED UREA ON GRAIN YIELD AND NUSE EFFICIENCY OF TRANSPLANTED RICE IN VERTISOLS
with medium duration rice. variety "Mahamaya" was conducted with SoU : FYM conditioned
and neem based products coated urea during khari! 1997. The application of Soil : FYM :
Urea (1:3:1) 2/3 as basal and remaining 1/3 atpaniCIe initiation stage of rice produced the
maximum grain yield (47.78 q/ha) and N use efficiency (30.21 kg grain /kg N), which was
significantly superior than priDed urea (PU), best split and PU coated with neem based products
(Nimin. Nimico, Neem sona) and applied whole amount as basal. Urea coated with neem
based products and applied 2/3 as basal and remaining 1/3 at PI stage found to be· equally
effective as Soil: FYM : Urea (1:3:1) for grain yield of rice. Urea coated with neem based
products and applied either 2/3 as basal and remaining 1/3 at PI stage or whole amount as
basal, although produced similar grain yield, but N use efficiency was higher when it was
applied 2/3 as ba!>al and 1/3 at PI stage.
