Effect of different levels of soil moisture and lime and manganese application on the growth and manganese iron nutrition of rice in an acid alfisol of himachal pradesh india



Effect of different levels of soil moisture and lime and manganese application on the growth and manganese iron nutrition of rice in an acid alfisol of himachal pradesh india



Acta Agronomica Hungarica 36(1-2): 29-36



A green house experiment with rice [Oryza sativa L.], as a test crop was conducted with two levels each of moisture and lime and three levels of manganese to investigate the effects of these treatments on growth, and manganese, iron nutrition of rice. The submergence, either without lime or without manganese application, reduced the grain and straw yield due to respective increase and decrease in iron and manganese contents. Yet, with either lime or manganese application, it increased them significantly, mainly due to the decreased iron content. While the application of lime under saturation did not affect the grain and straw yield, its application increased them significantly under submergence and irrespective of manganese application, mainly due to the decreased iron content and increased manganese content. The application of manganese either under submergence or with lime increased the grain and straw yield due to respective increase and decrease in manganese and iron content; but its application either under saturation or without liming did not affect them significantly. The application of lime and manganese together were proved quite beneficial for increasing the rice yield in the acid Alfisol of Himachal Pradesh.
