Rice, NPK fertilizer, wheat residue, Carbohydrate, fat.


A field experiment was conducted during Kharif season of July 2013 & 2014at crop research farm SHIATS Allahabad to study the effect of inorganic fertilizer and wheat residue on carbohydrate and fat content in basmati rice. Treatments were arranged using (4x3) factorial R.B.D with three replications. Increasing level of NPK fertilizer significantly increases carbohydrate content in grain in 100% RDF ha-1over control. Among incorporation/ retention of wheat residue also increase the carbohydrate content with increasing level from 0 to 5 tone ha-1. It was lower in control and higher in highest level of wheat residue, which was at par with 2.5 t ha-1 wheat residues in the year of experiment 2013-2014. In the fat content maximum increased in 100% RDF (NPK) over control. Among the fat content maximum increased in incorporation of 5 t ha-1 wheat residue was found better than the rest of the treatment both the years of experiment 2013,14 respectively.
