The effect of top dressing at panicle formation on growth and yield of rice was investigated in pot trials with the indica Kaladumai and Dular and the japonica Honen Wase and Norin 17. Grain yield/ hill was higher following a basal application rather than top-dressing for all cv., the increase being due to increased tillering and increased panicle number.
