Evaluation of rice establishment techniques in Jharkhand platue

Evaluation of rice establishment technique was studied with promising genotypes of rice at Darisai, Jharkhand, during wet season 2007 and 2008. The significantly maximum grain yield (5.17 t ha-1) was recorded under SRI method, transplanting 10 days old seedling. Variety Naveen and variety Lalat produced statistically equal yield, i.e., 4.77 t ha-1 and 4.34 t ha-1 respectively. Significantly maximum benefit: cost ratio was obtained under SRI method (2.61), where as among varieties it was maximum grain yield obtained from Naveen (2.44) followed by Lalat (2.22).
