A field experiment was carried out during kharif (sali) 2016 at Jorhat, Assam to study the performance of two scented local varieties (Kalajoha and Bakuljoha) of rice under different staggered planting and crop establishment methods (transplanting and throwing of seedlings). Both the varieties were comparable in respect of grain and straw yields. However, delay in planting beyond 20th July with 30 days seedlings upto 20th September using 90 (30+60) days double planted seedlings significantly reduced the yield of rice. Transplanting of seedling significantly increased the grain and straw yields over the throwing of seedling method. Variety ‘Bakuljoha’ recorded significantly higher net returns and benefit-cost ratio when transplanted on 20 July over other planting methods and dates.
