Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during August to November, 2002 and 2003 at Fanner\\\'s Field near Raghunathpur, West Bengal to study the effect of Phosphorus sources on seed production of rice bean cultivars in red lateritic zones of West Bengal. The cultivars differed for number of pods/m2 , number of seeds/pod, ~eed yield and seed husk ratio. RBL-35 perfonned better with a seed yield of 6.37 q/ha. ~plication of SSP as Phosphorus source gave significantly higher seed yield, number of pods/m2, number of seeds/pod and pod length over OAP. The interaction effect was found not significant.
