Influence of variable doses of N fertilizer on growth, tillering and yield of three traditional rice varieties was compared with that of a modern variety in a field experiment. The experiment was conducted at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University farm Salna, Gazipur during Aman season of 1996 to determine the tillering pattern, total dry matter production and yield performance of three local and one modern cultivar as influenced by nitrogen fertilizer. Application of 60 kg N ha-1 produced more TDM and lesser ineffective tillers. Traditional varieties accumulated higher amount of vegetative dry matter than the modern variety. Cultivar KK-4, a high yielding variety outyielded (4772 kg ha-1 ) the indigenous varieties Jharapajam (4150 kg ha-1 ), Lalmota (3628 kg ha-1 ) and Bansful Chikon (3575 kg ha-1 ). Application of 30 kg N ha-1 appropriate for low responsive traditional varieties produced the highest yield (4451 kg ha-1 ). Download
