Abstract
Field experiments were conducted for three consecutive years during 1979-80 to 1981-82 to find out the relative efficiency of different forms of urea fertilizer for rice and their residual effect on the succeeding crop of wheat. In rice crop, root zone placement of nitrogen as urea super granule 1.0 g size (USG) under puddled field condition was proved to be superior to other sources. The relative efficiency of USG, urea in splits and sulphur coated urea (SCU) was 116.92%, 107.71% and 101.41% respectively as compared to ordinary urea at planting. Significant residual effect on succeeding crop of wheat recorded in case of SCU which was followed by USG, urea in splits and urea at planting.
