Results of the field experiment conducted during rabi, 2009-10 at Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat revealed that productivity of linseed grown after rice could be enhanced following conventional tillage practice, recommended dose of fertilizers (40-20-10 kg N, P2O5, K2O/ha) and maintaining cutting height of rice stubble at 40 cm above the ground level.
