Ratooning Response of Lowland Rice NSIC Rc216 to the Residual Effect of Goat Manure Application

Main Article Content

Alexis Gonzales Dionesio M. Bañoc*


This study investigated the response of NSIC Rc216 lowland rice ratoon crop to the residual effect of applied goat manure supplemented with various inorganic fertilizer rates. It also evaluated the profitability of rice ratooning as influenced by the abovementioned treatments. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications and six treatments. The residual effect of goat manure supplemented with inorganic fertilizer during ratoon cropping affected the yields of fresh straws and grains of lowland rice. Ratoon plants with residual effect from the application of 5 t ha-1 goat manure in the main crop and supplemented with 30-30-30 kg inorganic NPK ha-1 achieved remarkably higher grain yield (1.57 t ha-1) than the residual effect of goat manure alone and unfertilized control plants. This higher yield is mainly attributed to a remarkable yield of fresh straws and abundant tiller production. This treatment also obtained the highest gross margin (Php16,585) during ratooning. This option is an alternative measure in adapting to climate change due to the lower cost of production and shorter period of growing ratoon crops.
