Performance of modern boro rice varieties under different planting methods

An experiment was conducted at the Agronomy Field Laboratory, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during January-May 2006 to determine the effect of variety and planting method on the yield of boro rice. Four varieties viz., BINADHAN-5, BINADHAN-6, BRRI dhan28 and BRRI dhan29, and three planting methods viz., transplanting method, drum seeding and line sowing were included as experimental treatments. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design with three replications. BINADHAN-5 produced the highest grain yield (4.61 t ha-1) which was the consequence of highest number of effective tillers hill-1 and highest number of grains panicle-1. Among the planning methods, transplanting method produced the maximum grain yield (4.59 t ha-1) because of highest number of grains panicle-1. In case of effect of interaction of BINADHAN-5 and transplanting method produced the highest grain (5.20 t ha-1) yield. It may be concluded that the variety BINADHAN-5 may be grown following transplanting method for higher grain yield in boro season.
