Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during the kharif season of 2020-21 and 2021-22 at the Agronomy farm, College of Agriculture, Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri (M.S.). The experimental soil was sandy clay loam texture, slightly acidic (pH) reaction, high in organic carbon, and low in available N, low in available P2O5 and medium in available K2O. The experiment was laid out in RBD comprising of 4 treatments replicated five times. The treatments comprised of different farming practices viz., low budget, organic, conservation and conventional farming practices. During the course of investigation, growth observations of rice was recorded periodically from 30 DAT till at the harvest at an interval of 30 days and yield contributing characters and yields were recorded at harvest to evaluate the treatment effects. The uptake of major nutrients by the kharif rice was analyzed and interpreted. Similarly, economics of different treatments was worked out. The growth parameters like plant height, number of tillers, number of leaves and dry matter accumulation were significantly higher under conservation farming practice followed by conventional, organic and low budget farming practices in that descending order of significance in the pooled data. The grain and straw yield of rice was significantly higher under conservation farming practice as compared to rest of the treatments, whereas soil pH, organic carbon, available N, available P and available K performed better result under organic farming practice than other treatments which was followed by conservation, conventional and low budget farming practice. Thus, the study suggested that conservation and organic farming practice could be the best farming practices for sustainable growth and production as well as nutrient status of the soil in kharif rice under lateritic soil.
