Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during rainy season (2014) to evaluate the effect of age of seedlings
and spacing on growth, yield and yield attributes and seed quality of hybrid rice (Oryza sativa L.)
under system of rice intensification. The 8 treatments were laid out in split plot design, keeping
combinations of two hybrid (DRRH-2 and DRRH-3) and seedlings age (12 and 25 days old) in main
plots and two spacings (25×25 cm and 20×15 cm) in sub-plots with 3 replications. The hybrid rice
genotype DRRH-3 was significantly superior than DRRH-2 with respect to growth parameters,
yield attributes, seed yield and seed quality. Among the age of seedlings, 12 days old seedlings
registered higher growth, yield & yield attributes and seed quality parameters and it produced 1.23
q/ha more seed yield than 25 days old seedlings. Similarly wider row spacing of 25×25 cm recorded
higher growth parameters, yield attributes, seed yield, seed quality and soil health due to profuse
root growth. Among the hybrid rice, root length (cm), shoot length (cm) & seedling dry weight (g)
were higher in DRRH-3 (20.22, 11.98 & 0.772, respectively) and vigour index-II (66.9) was highest in
DRRH-2.
