EMILYMORALES, RONALDO Z., and GUIMPOL, EMILY V., Different level on application of vermicast using vermitea as supplement on the growth performance of Basmati Rice (CL-1) under Quezon Province condition. Research. Quezon National Agricultural School, Pagbilao, Quezon. November 2014.

 

            The experiment was conducted at the rice field area of Quezon National Agricultural School, Malicboy, Pagbilao, Quezon during the month of June to October, 2014 with a view to determine the response of vermicast into Basmati rice by different level of application on the growth performance of transplanted rice.

            The experiment comprises of four treatments: T1 (control), T2 (1.5 kgs @ 200 ml vermitea), T3 (2.0 kgs @ 200 ml of vermitea) and T4 (2.5 kgs @ 200 ml vermitea). Plant performance of increasing number of tillers has observed in Treatment 4 while the productive plant height has been dominated by Treatment 2. Nevertheless, plant characters were not significantly influenced by the different treatments. It was found out that using alone the vermicaast fertilizer and supplements of vermitea is not sufficient to sustain the productivity of plants.
