Cut down fertilizer nitrogen need of rice by Glyricidia green manure

Cut down fertilizer nitrogen need of rice by Glyricidia green manure

Indian Farming 39(3): 34-35

Brief data are reported from a study at Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli, Maharashtra, in 1985-86. On a lateritic soil, the existing requirement of 10 kg/ha of fertilizer N could be cut by 50% by supplying 5 t of fresh leaves of Glyricidia maculata (1 t dry wt., equivalent to 27 kg organic N) as a basal application just before transplanting the rice crop, with 50 kg fertilizer N (as urea) in 2 applications and 50 kg/ha P2O5. The rainfed rice (cv.
