A study was conducted at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University Experimental Field (Bangladesh) in July-December 1997 to investigate the effects of green manuring with Sesbania aculeata and S. rostrata on rice productivity and soil environment. Green biomass of Sesbania spp. of 15 t ha-1 was applied to the soil along with inorganic N (0, 20, 40, 60, and 80 kg ha-1) two weeks before the transplant of rice BR11.
