We conducted two experiments during 1994 at Cuttack, India in adjoining fields. In the first, seeds of varying densities were sown at different rates using a common basal dose of 40 kg N ha-1. Nine treatment combinations were arranged in a factorial randomized complete block design with three replications. In experiment 2, only low and high-density seeds were grown at 400 and 600 seeds m-2 using 0 and 40 kg N ha-1. Sixteen treatment combinations were arranged in a split-plot design with three replications, keeping submergence levels in main plots and combinations of seed rate, seed density, and N fertilizer in sub-plots.
