PIONEER®HYBRID RICE

Rice is the most important food crop in India.  It occupies 42.0 million hectares making India the largest rice area in the world.

The country's population of more than a billion is growing at 1.8% per year, outpacing the 1.4% annual growth rate of rice production. To maintain self-sufficiency, annual production needs to increase by 2 million tons every year.

Rapid adaption of Hybrid Rice will help to increase the production for meeting growing population food demand.

SPECIAL TIPS FOR RICE CULTIVATION

  • Nursery Management in raised seed beds: Raise nurseries in raised seed beds of 1.5 m width so that excess water can be drained out and the delicate seedlings can be protected from seedling blight and water logging. Soaking and incubation for 24 hours each would give the best germination.
  • Transplant the right aged seedling: The right stage to plant is at the 4 leaf stage when the seedling is well developed i.e, around 21 to 25 days after sowing.
  • Transplant 1 -2 seedlings at one hill
  • Plant at the right density: 20 X 15 cm is the optimum to have more panicles per unit area to get the best panicles & maximum yield.
  • More splits of N is recommended to facilitate good tillering, panicle and grain development.
  • Use Leaf Colour Card to avoid excessive Urea Application
  • K is very important for rice as it provides tolerance to pest & diseases and improves the grain quality and weight. Apply it as two splits, one as basal and one at the time of panicle initiation.
  • Harvest at the right stage: The crop should be harvested at physiological maturity when atleast 85% of the grain husks turn straw coloured and when the moisture in the grains is less than 20%.
