Abstract

Rice is the staple cereal food grain of majority of India’s over one billion population. As there is no scope to increase the area under rice, System of Rice Intensification (SRI) is considered as one of the technologies to increase the productivity. Contrary to this, SRI is showed by some workers as labour intensive, difficult to practice and on par to that of conventional method without any yield advantage. Nutrient management must be sound for achieving the yield potential of rice hybrids/ HYV’s under SRI. The use of organic manures such as application of FYM has been proved to be viable component of INM for SRI.
