Abstract

A study was conducted to determine the effects of soil type and seed inoculants and the interaction of these soil type and inoculants on germination, seedling vigor and yield of upland rice. It was conducted from November 23, 2016 to March 3, 2017 at Cagayan State University, Lal-lo, Cagayan. There were two factors used in the study. Factor A (Soil Type) T1– Clay, T2– Silty Clay and T3– Silty clay loam, and Factor B (Seed Inoculants) S1– Rhizobia, S2– Mycovam and S3Azospirillum (Bio-N). The Completely Randomized Design in 3×3 factorial was used in the experiment. Based from the result of the study, it was concluded that the soil type affects the seed germination at 14 days after sowing but not at 7 and 21 days after sowing, the soil type 3 (silty clay loam) obtained the longest root length at 7 DAS, the Rhizobia and Mycovam influenced the number of productive tiller, number of filled spikelets, length of panicles and weight of 1000 seeds. Therefore, Rhizobia (S1) and Mycovam (S2) are recommended because it influenced the seedling vigor and seed germination, root length, increased the number of productive tillers, number of filled spikelets, length of panicles and weight of 1000 grains.
