Abstract: This study was designed to investigate the effect of different levels of NPK on paddy yield and quality of rice cultivar IR-6. The proposed levels were 0-0-0, 120-0-0, 120-60-0, 120-0-60, 120-60-60, 120-90-0, 120-0-90 and 120-90-90 NPK kg ha–1. The treatments were replicated four times in randomized complete block design. Data showed that plant height, tillers hill–1, and paddy yield were affected significantly by different levels of NPK as compared to control.
Keywords: Block design, NPK levels, paddy yield, plant height, rice cultivar, tillers per hill, treatments.
