A field experiment was carried out using split plot design with three replications during kharif 2017 to evaluate the effect of planting methods and varieties on yield and economics of paddy. The study comprised of five planting methods as main plots and two varieties as sub plots. Results revealed that, maximum grain yield (27.96 q ha-1) and straw yield (42.93 q ha-1) was obtained with the method of PKV SRI transplanting at 25 cm x 25 cm which was significantly superior over other methods. The PKV SRI transplanting at 20 cm x 20 cm was found to be at par with drilling at 25 cm; drilling at 20 cm and farmers practice. In terms of economics, the highest gross monetary returns (Rs. 71405 ha-1) and net monetary returns (Rs. 53588 ha-1) were observed with the planting method of PKV SRI transplanting at 25 cm x 25 cm. Highest B:C ratio of 4.01 was also recorded with the planting method PKV SRI transplanting at 25 cm x 25 cm which was followed by PKV SRI transplanting at 20 cm x 20 cm. Grain & straw yield (q ha-1), gross monetary returns, net monetary returns and B:C ratio were not influenced due to varieties.
Key words: Paddy, Planting methods, Varieties, Yield, Economics.
