Field Preparations :
Field should be prepared twice or thrice by ploughing and cross ploughing.
Preferably this strain should be direct sown in the line with a line to line spacing of 20 cm. the seed rate of 70-80 Kg/ha should be maintained. The seed should be treated with bavistin.
• 10 t/ha FYM may be incorporated in the soil to obtain high yield potential.
• The depth of planting should not exceed more than 5 to 6 cm.
• Planting should not be done between third to fourth week of june to obtain the potential yield from the variety.
The herbicide may be used to avoid initial weed crop competition. For this purpose, 1.50 Kg a. i/ha Butachlore or 1.00 kg a. i/ha Pendamethaline should be applied as pre emergence (3-5 day after transplanting) in moist field condition. One mechanical or hand weeding may be performed at 25-30 days after sowing.
80 Kg N/ha; 60 Kg P2O5/ha; 40 kg K2O/ha.
Time of fertilizer application:
The whole quantity of phosphorous and potash and 50% Nitrogen should be applied as basal dressing in heavy soil. The remaining N should be top dressed in two equal splits at active tillering and PI stage of the crop. The basal applied fertilizer may properly be incorporated in the soil; otherwise applied N may be lossed through various means. Under light soils only 30 % N may be applied before transplanting and properly incorporated in the puddle field. The treating of urea either with neem cake of neem extract materials enhanced the efficiency of applied N. thus; this technology should be preferred during kharif season.
The need based and recommended plant protection measures should be adopted. The other cultural practices may be adopted similar as recommended for Kharif rice.
