Sali/ Kharif Rice Nursery sowing to Main field preparation

 Prepare raised nursery bed of size 10m (length) × 1.25m (width) × 10cm (height) with 30cm wide channel between the two seed beds.

 Apply cow dung or compost@10-15kg/seed bedplus a starter dose of urea 80g, SSP 225g, MOP 40g per seed

 Collect seed of HYV like Shahsarang -1, Lampnah, IR 64,bed.

Ranjit, RCPL 1-412, RCPL 1-410, RCPL 1-411 & local varieties like Mendri, Manipuri, etc.

 650-1000g seed is required for each bed. (Nursery area of 500-600 sqm. is sufficient for transplanting of 1ha).

 Keep the main field ready for transplanting.

Seed treatment  Before sowing seeds should be treated with Bavistin 50WP@ 2g/l or Mancozeb 2.5g/l with water for 24hr to protect from fungal infestation.

Boro paddy Maturity/

Harvesting stage  Harvest mature crop and sun dry before storing.

Direct seeded Ahu Tillering/Panicle

 Conserve water by repairing bunds.

Thrips  Farmers should keep vigilance against the attack of thrips and spray insecticide like Chloropyriphos @ 2ml/lit of water if moderate to high intensity is observed.

Blast  If blast spot are seen, apply Mencozeb @ 2g/litre or Carbendezime @1g/l. Spraying should be done in sunny weather and it should be withheld if rainfall is predicted in the coming days.

Rice Gundhi

bug/Stem borer  Spray Malathion 5% dust @ 6.25kg/ha for Rice Gandhi bug and Chloropyriphos @0.02% or Monocrotophos @ 0.04% for stem borer.
