ABSTRACT

Humic acid (HA) and poultry manure (PM) were applied on T. aman rice cv. BRRI dhan39 to observe their effects on rice. Three levels of humic acid viz. 0, 3 and 6 L ha-1 and three levels of poultry manure viz. 0, 3 and 6 t ha-1 were applied along with recommended doses of N, P, K and S fertilizers from urea, TSP, MoP and gypsum, respectively following Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD). Parameters used in the experiment were plant height, effective tillers hill-1, panicle length, no. of grains panicle-1, 1000-grain weight, grain and straw yields. The application of different treatments showed positive trend in all the parameters of BRRI dhan39. The highest grain yield (4.07 t ha-1) was recorded by the application of 6 L ha-1 humic acid along with 3 t ha-1 poultry manure which was identical with the application of 6 L ha-1 humic acid along with 6 t ha-1 poultry manure but was different from other treatment combinations.
