Abstract

An experiment was conducted at BINA sub-station, Gopalganj during Aus season in 2019-20 to compare the performance between System of Rice Intensification (SRI) and conventional rice cultivation methods. In this experiment the treatments were system of rice intensification (SRI) and conventional method of rice cultivation and the test crop was Binadhan-14. In SRI method (A10S2M) seedling age (A) was 10 days, no. of seedlings/hill (S) was 2 and irrigated condition was moist (M).  In conventional method (A25S3F) seedling age (A) was 25 days, no. of seedlings/hill (S) was 3 and irrigated condition was flooded (F). In terms of plant height, tillers/hill and dry matter partitioning SRI performed better than the conventional method of rice cultivation. SRI showed better performance in terms of yield contributing characters than conventional cultivation method. SRI showed the highest yield (7 t/ha) than conventional (6.67 t/ha) cultivation method.

Keywords:
System of Rice Intensification (SRI), aus, binadhan-14, moist condition and dry matter partitioning.
