The experiment was conducted at the Agronomy Field Laboratory, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh to evaluate the influence of variety and number of seedlings hill-1 on the growth and yield of transplanted aus rice. The experiment consisted of two rice varieties viz., BR 3 and BR 26, and four levels of seedlings hill-1 viz., 1, 2, 3 and 4 seedlings hill-1. Variety significantly influenced all the growth parameters, yields and yield components of transplanted rice plants. BR 3 produced higher panicle length (22.33 cm), number of grains panicle-1 (67.99), weight of 1000 grains (24.55 g) and grain yield (3.46 t ha-1) than BR 26. On the other hand, number of seedlings hill-1 significantly influenced all the characters studied except weight of 1000 grains. The highest grain yield (3.42 t ha-1) was obtained from 3 seedlings hill-1 which was statistically identical with 2 seedlings hill-1 (3.30 t ha-1). The highest straw yield (4.40 t ha-1) was observed in 4 seedlings hill-1 which was statistically identical with 3 seedlings hill-1 (4.28 t ha-1) and the lowest (3.77 t ha-1) was recorded from 1 seedling hill-1. BR 3 with 3 seedlings hill-1 was found as the best seedling rate to produce higher grain yield than BR 26. Download
