Abstract: A field experiment was conducted for two consecutive years to study the growth and yield response of rice during kharif season under different levels of triacontanol. Application of triacontanol in rice (cv. Satabdi) indicated that the crop stand was satisfactory and no significant difference was observed in plant number per unit area. Increase in yield of crop over control was found to be to the tune of 24.94 q/ha grain yield with triacontanol 95 percent @ 0.33 ml per liter of water with an increase of 51.26 percent grain yield and 47.13 percent straw yield.. Application of triacontanol showed positive effect on Leaf Area Index and dry matter accumulation of the crop.
