Triple rice in a year: Is it feasible for low salinity areas of the coastal zone of Bangladesh?

  1. 1. Welcome
  2. 2. Triple rice in a year: Is it feasible for low salinity areas of the coastal zone of Bangladesh? N. K. Saha, M. K. Mondal, E. Humphreys, M. H. Rashid, P. C. Paul, S. P. Ritu
  3. 3. Rationale ● Fresh water all the year round in much of Barisal ● Current cropping patterns: ○ Fallow/Aus-T.Aman-Fallow/Keshari ○ 0-3 2-3.5 0-1 t/ha ● Possible technology to fit 3 rice crops in a year ● 50% cultivable land medium high (SRDI 2010) ● HYV rice ● River water for Boro, river water & rainfall for Aus drainage to Aman crop.
  4. 4. Hypotheses of the study M J J A S O N D J F M A M T. Aman (130-140 d) Boro (140-145 d) Aus (100-105 d) ● 3 high yielding rice crops per year IS possible in coastal zone where ○ fresh water available throughout the year ○ ability to drain excess water
  5. 5. Objectives To evaluate combination of planting dates and aman varieties for triple rice system ● Feasibility ● System yield ● Irrigation water requirement for boro
  6. 6. Basic site information ● PSTU farm, Patuakhali ● Clay loam ● Lowland Drain & Water source ~100 m
  7. 7. Experimental design Treatments: ➢ E1-3: aus sowing dates/establishment method ➢ V1-4: aman varieties ➢ D1-5:boro sowing dates
  8. 8. Aus establishment treatments (E) ● E1= Sown 10 April, transplanted 1 May ● E2= Sown on 25 April, transplanted 15 May ● E3= Sown Direct (wet) seeded 1 May Variety: OM1490 (100 days)
  9. 9. Aman variety treatments (V) RULE: Transplanting date 10 d after harvest of each aus treatment E1 and E2: ● V1 BRRI dhan49 (duration 135 d) ● V2 BRRI dhan52 (duration 145 d, submergent tolerant) E3: ● V3 BRRI dhan33 (duration 118 d) ● V4 BRRI dhan53 (duration 125 d)
  10. 10. Boro sowing date treatments (D) RULES: ● First transplanting date NOT less than 10 d after aman harvest, & NOT before 15 November ● Second transplanting date 15 d after first ● D1= 15 November ● D2= 20 November ● D3= 30 November ● D4= 05 December ● D5= 15 December

  12. 12. Crop management information ● Crop establishment: Transplanting (all crops): 21 day-old seedlings 20 cm x 20 cm Direct seeded aus (Dsaus): 20 cm row spacing

  14. 14. Irrigation: ● T.Aus and DSaus – irrigated as needed from canal ● Boro– Fully irrigated from canal (pumping) Drainage: Excess water during aus & aman– at low tide
  15. 15. Weed, pest and disease management • Good control of pests and diseases (BRRI, 2012 recs) (except brown spot in aman 2013 and boro 2012-13 first 2 sowings) • plastic barrier to keep rats out • netting to keep birds out Bird nets Plastic barrier
  16. 16. Crop Monitoring ● Phenology dates: ● PI, FL, PM ● Biomass: fortnightly ● Yield and yield components: ● Panicles/m2 ● Florets/panicle ● Floret fertility ● 1000 grain wt. ● Grain & straw yield
  17. 17. Irrigation monitoring ● The amount of water/plot: ○ pump discharge rate (R), duration of irrigation (T), and plot area (A). ○ Formula: (R X T)/A

  31. 31. Conclusion & Recommendation ● It is feasible to fit 3 rice crop in a year ● 13.4 to 17.2 t/ha/yr about 3 x farmers’ harvest ● Average 10-12 day turn around period ● Need for model simulation to evaluate performance over range of weather conditions ● Will pests & diseases become a problem in triple rice systems – need for ecologically friendly management systems
