We conducted field experiments to evaluate the effect of plant density on yield of hybrid rice during the 1996-97 wet seasons at the GBPUAT Crop Research Centre. A split-plot design, with 20 x 20 cm and 15 x 15-cm spacing in the main plot and 1, 2, and 3 seedlings hill-1 in the subplot, was used with four replications. Promising hybrid variety PRH1 (128 d) (1996) and recently released Pant Sankar Dhan-1 (118 d) (1997) were used.
