To address the issues of sustainability of food production on account of changing climate, it is imperative to evolve nutrient management practices aimed at sustained productivity of rice in rice-based cropping system. To study the influence of different nutrient management strategies, a field experiment was undertaken for three consecutive kharif seasons of 2014-2016 on silty clay loam soil of Kashmir under temperate environment. Seven nutrient management practices; Recommended fertilizer dose (RDF) (T1), Azotobactor + PSB (Biofertilizer) + 75% RDF (T2), Biofertilizer + Green manure (GM)+ 75% RDF (T3), Biofertilizer + GM + residue mulch (RM) + 75% RDF(T4), Biofertilizer + GM + RM + 50% RDF (T5), Biofertilizer + Farm yard manure (FYM) + 50% RDF(T6), Biofertilizer + FYM +75% RDF(T7) were evaluated. The results revealed that the mean crop yields obtained from the application of inorganic fertilizers (T1) were significantly greater though remaining statistically identical to the conjunctive use of organic (bio fertilizers and FYM) and inorganic fertilizers along with other improved management practices i.e., split application of N under puddled conditions (T7) and the lowest yield was obtained in T2. The performance of split application of N T1 and T7 was also better with regard to panicle number and panicle weight.
