The experiment was carried out during kharif season of 2012-13 at the farm, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Lakhanpur village, Katghora block, Korba district (Chhattisgarh). The experiment was laid out with 63 rice genotypes and 5 check varieties in augmented design. The soil was highly acidic in reaction and low in available macronutrients. Available Fe, Mn and Cu were above the critical levels, while the Zn was below the critical level. Among the genotypes Denteshwari in early, IR 64 in mid early, Indira Maheshwari in medium, Safri-17 in late durations and Mahisugandha in aromatic groups produced higher yield and nutrient uptake compare to other genotypes which made them acid tolerant. The uptake pattern of macronutrients followed the similar trend of yield in these genotypes. Copyright © EM International.
