Response of Chemical Fertilization on Some Nitrogenous Biomolecules in Grains of a Popular Rice Cultivar

  • Vikas Jain
Keywords: Rice, Crude Protein, Total free Aminoacids


Agronomical field study was conducted to study the effect of different levels of NPK fertilization on crude protein, total nitrogen, nitrate and nitrite nitrogen, non protein nitrogen and total free amino acids in the rice grains of well known variety Pant-4. T.N. and C.P. content was found to increase with the increase in fertilizer doses whereas the nitrate nitrogen content decreased. Nitrite nitrogen and non protein nitrogen showed an irregular trend with respect to control. However the quantity of total amino acid was found optimum at N80P40K30 dose.
