Impact of organic manure and inorganic phosphatic fertilizer on yield and nutrient uptake in a rice-rice cropping system

Discipline: Agriculture



The complementary use of organic manures and chemical fertilizers augments the efficiency of both substances to sustain a higher level of rice productivity. An increase in grain and straw yields has been reported with increasing levels of Gliricidia leaves because of the overall improvement in soil properties such as water and nutrient retention. Field experiments were conducted at the ACRI research farm during the 2000-01 wet seasons (Aug-Dec) to study the influence of organic manures and inorganic phosphatic fertilizers on the rice-rice cropping system.
