Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during the kharif season of 2011 at Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Regional Research Station, Kaul, India to study the comparative performance of scented/basmati rice (CSR 30) under five different methods of planting viz., machine transplanting under pudlled and unpuddled conditions, direct seeding under vattar conditions, direct seeding under zero tillage (with residue), conventional practice (nursery raising) in a randomised block design with three replications. Among different methods plant height and dry matter were significantly higher at all growth stages under M1 and M5 as compared to remaining planting methods. Likewise, the yield attributes were also significantly better under M1 and M5. However, the methods of planting had little effect on various growth and agrometeorological indices and values of these were at par. Mechanical transplanting under puddled conditions gave better results in terms of plant height, dry matter accumulation, yield and yield attributes such as grain yield, straw yield, number of effective tillers, panicle weight, test weight under agroclimatic conditions of Kaul, the growth indices and agrometeorological indices being at par with other planting methods.
