The effects of splitting tillers on the growth and yield of rice (cv. BR11) was studied in 2 experiments conducted in Gazipur, Bangladesh during 1990 and 1991. Treatments were: keeping the whole plant intact (control), splitting out all tillers and retaining only 2 (S1) and 4 (S2) tillers with the mother hill, and transplanting of split tillers at 2 (S3) and 4 (S4) tillers per hill. In 1990, variations in yield among treatments were not significant.
