A field experiment was conducted in kharif season of 2015 to investigate the influence of silicon solublizer on different rice genotypes namely PA-6129, PA-6201, PA-6444, PHB-71, US-312, and BPT-5204. Soil application of silicon solubilizers was given at the time of maximum tillering, panicle initiation and 50% flowering stage. The experiment was arranged as split plot design with three treatments and three replications.  Various growth parameter mainly plant height, leaf area index, at maximum tillering, panicle initiation, and 50% flowering, and yield attributes mainlypanicle weight, grains per panicle ,test weight,economic yields, harvest index were evaluated at maturity stage. All rice genotypes showed the positive correlation with silicon solublizers aplication which increases, plant height, leaf area index,at three different stages and also show higher panicle per square meter, spikelet per panicle, biological yield, economic yield (g/m2 ), harvest index at maturity stages. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the silicon solublizers influences the growth,yields and physiological  attributes in different rice genotypes. By using the silicon solublizers one would expect to raise the yield many fold, of rice and fulfilling the demand of overgrowing population in the up coming years.

Key words: Silicon, Plant, Economic, Yields
