Abstract:

This study aimed to determine the effective rice farming protocol for organic and sustainable rice production. The Randomized Complete Block Design was utilized in 5 treatments with 5 replications. The experimental study has 25 experimental plots with an area of 28 square meters/plot. Treatments were: chemical fertilizer as control treatment; Protocol 1, utilizing vermicast with indigenous microorganism (IMO), fermented plant juice (FPJ), fermented fruit juice (FFJ) and Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) as source of plant nutrients; Protocol 2- utilizing vermicast with Agropower, Delgro microbial inoculant (DMI) as source of commercial Natural Farming Products; Protocol 3- utilizing vermicast only as source of plant nutrients, and Protocol 4- combinations of 3 protocols. The results of the study revealed that different protocols for organic rice production were not significant in terms of the yield of rice in dry weight basis (14% moisture). The results imply that the rice yield from four protocols of organic rice production were comparable with rice farming using chemical fertilizers.
