Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during 2014-15 and 2015-16 to study the effect of iron (FS 1% and SA 30 kg ha-1), zinc (FS 0.5% and SA 25 kg ha-1) and organic manures application ( FYM 2.5,5.0 t ha-1 and vermicompost 1.5,3.0 t ha-1 and brown manure) on direct seeded dry rice in silty clay loam soil. Results revealed that vermicompost applied in conjunction with brown manure (RDF +BM + 1.5t VC) resulted in production of more dry matter, more number of effective tillers and higher grain yield, this treatment was found at par with combined foliar application of zinc and iron. Combined foliar application of iron and zinc (RDF + 1 FS of 0.5% ZnSO4 + 3 FS of 1% FeSO4) yielded more than their combined soil application than their sole application. Vermicompost combined with brown manure recorded higher gross returns while, combined foliar fertilization of zinc and iron registered with higher net return and benefit cost ratio.
