Abstract: Field experiment was conducted at Post Graduate Research Farm, Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth Rahuri India, to study the effect of soil types and silicon fertilization on growth and yield of upland paddy. The field experiment was laid out in split plot design having fourteen treatment combinations replicated thrice. The main treatments were soil types Inceptisols and Vertisols; sub treatments were levels of silicon, T1: Absolute control, T2: GRDF (100:50:50 kg ha-1 N:P2O5:K2O + 5 t ha-1 FYM), T3: GRDF + Si @ 25 kg ha-1, T4: GRDF + Si @ 50 kg ha-1, T5: GRDF + Si @ 100 kg ha-1, T6: GRDF + Si @ 150 kg ha-1 and T7: GRDF + Si @ 200 kg ha-1. The results revealed that soil type Vertisols showed significantly highest growth, yield attributes, grain (3701 kg ha-1) and straw (4213 kg ha-1) yield of upland paddy over Inceptisols. Application of general recommended dose of fertilizers (GRDF) along with Si @ 200 kg ha-1 recorded significantly highest growth, yield attributes, grain (4185 kg ha-1) and straw (4763 kg ha-1) yield of upland paddy over other levels of silicon.
