Abstract

An experiment was conducted at the Agronomy Field Laboratory, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during January to June 2016 to observe the effect of water, nutrient and weed management practices on the yield and quality of aromatic Boro rice (cv. BRRI dhan50). The experiment consisted of three water managements viz. conventional flood irrigation, AWD (Alternate Wetting and Drying) and SRI (System of Rice Intensification); two nutrient managements viz. recommended dose of inorganic fertilizers (Urea, TSP, MoP, Gypsum, ZnSO4 @ 250, 120, 120, 100, 10 Kg ha-1, respectively) and 25% less than recommended dose of inorganic fertilizer + poultry manure @ 2.5 t ha-1; and three weed managements viz. weedy check (control), two hand weeding at 20 and 40 DAT, and pre-emergence herbicide (Rifit 33EC) followed by post emergence herbicide (Fast klin 10WP) application. The highest number of effective tillers hill-1, grains panicle-1,grain yield and protein (%) in grain were obtained in SRI water management which was followed by AWD and conventional flood irrigation. Between the two nutrient management practices, application of 25% less than recommended dose of inorganic fertilizer + poultry manure @ 2.5 t ha-1 produced higher number of effective tillers hill-1,grains panicle-1,1000-grain weight, grain yield and protein (%) in grain than in organic fertilizer. Among the weed management practices, application of pre-emergence herbicide (Rifit 33EC) followed by post-emergence herbicide (Fast Klin 10WP) produced the highest number of effective tillers hill-1,grains panicle-1,1000-grain weight, grain yield and protein (%) in grain followed by two weedings at 20 and 40 DAT while the lowest grain yield was obtained in weedy check. The highest number of effective tillers hill-1,grains panicle-1, grain yield and protein (%) in grain was found in SRI water management combined with 25% less than recommended dose of inorganic fertilizer + poultry manure @ 2.5 t ha-1 and application of pre-emergence herbicide followed by post-emergence herbicide. So, it may be concluded that, to get the highest grain yield in aromatic Boro rice, SRI method along with application of 25% less than recommended dose of inorganic fertilizer + poultry manure @ 2.5 t ha-1 and applying pre-emergence herbicide (Rifit 33EC) followed by post emergence herbicide (Fast Klin 10WP) couldĀ  be recommended.
