Abstract:
Study was conducted to evaluate the different water application method for promising aerobic rice (Oryzasativa L.) variety. (PSBRc9). This was conducted at Nagbalayong, Morong, Bataan from November, 2014 to March, 2015. Treatments used for the experiments were 2 planting methods, the P1 (transplanting) and P2 (broadcasting) and 3 water application methods, the W1 (flooding), W2 (furrow) and W3 (drip). The rice variety used for this study was PSBRc9 (AP0).Highest plants were observed from broadcasting under flooding method and most number of tillers was attained in transplanted rice under flooding irrigation. Longest panicle was also observed from transplanted rice under flooding irrigation and most number of grains per panicle was harvested from this treatment. Grain yield in terms of weight was observed from transplanting under flooding irrigation method. Irrigating the field using flooding irrigation in transplanting method can increase the number of tillers, number of productive tillers, panicle length, number of fillers grains per treatment, number of filled grains, weight of 1000 grains in grams and grain yield in kilograms per treatment in comparison to furrow and drip irrigation. In conclusion, based on average plant height of the PSBRc9 rice variety the highest plant height was attained by broadcasting method of planting under flooding method of irrigation.
