The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with ten treatments replicated thrice. The treatments
consisted of 100%, 75% and 50% recommended dose of nutrients (RDN) through chemical fertilizers and 25% and 50% RDN through organic
sources like farm yard manure and blue green algae (BGA). Application of 75% of recommended NPK through inorganic + FYM @ 10 t ha-1 +
BGA @ 15 kg ha-1 recorded significantly more number of tillers hill-1, panicle length, grains panicle-1 and yield. Highest B:C was observed in 75%
of recommended NPK through inorganic + BGA @ 15 kg ha-1.
