Abstract: A Field experiment was conducted since last five years at Central Farm, OUAT, Bhubaneswar, under AICRP on micronutrient during Rabi 2015-16 to study the Effect of graded doses of Zinc in rice (Lalit variety) soil and its uptake, translocation and grain Zinc loading to rice plant. The experiment was carried out in factorial randomized block design with 13 treatments i.e. T1-2.5 kg/ha ZnSO4, T2-5 kg/ha ZnSO4, T3-7.5 kg/ha ZnSO4 and T4-10 kg/ha ZnSO4 at once in 6 years, T5-2.5 kg/ha ZnSO4, T6-5 kg/ha ZnSO4, T7-7.5 kg/ha ZnSO4 and T8-10 kg/ha ZnSO4 at alternate years, T9-2.5 kg/ha ZnSO4, T10-5 kg/ha ZnSO4, T11-7.5 kg/ha ZnSO4 and T12-10 kg/ha ZnSO4 at every year and T13 is control which were replicated 3 times. Experimental results showed that zinc applied at alternate years gave better zinc content in grain T8 (80.67 mg/kg), husk T8 (76.83 mg/kg), rachis T8 (444.5 mg/kg), leaves T8 (85.67 mg/kg), stems T8 (534 mg/kg), roots T8 (906.33 mg/kg).
