The balance use of fertilizer for sustainable crop production is possible by measuring the need of crop’s demand after soil test. The objective of this study was to investigate the fertilizer requirement of BRRI dhan30 for better production in saline soil during the transplant aman seasons. There were six treatment combinations such as T1 = 100% of STB (soil test base) fertilizers (N103P6K50Zn1kg/ha), T2 = T1 + 25%N of STB fertilizers, T3 = T1 + 25%NP of STB fertilizers, T4 = T1 + 25%NK of STB fertilizers, T5 = T1 + 25%PK of STB fertilizers, T6 = T1 + 25%NPK of STB fertilizers, T7 = 75% of STB fertilizers and T8 = Control. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design with three replications. The yield contributing characters and yields of BRRI dhan30 were significantly affected due to different treatments. Number of effective tillers hill-1, panicle length, filled grains panicle-1, and 1000-grain weights were higher in the treatment T6 (T1 + 25%NPK) fertilizers. In all the experimental location, the highest grain yields (4.88, 5.02, 4.98 and 5.06 t/ha, respectively) were obtained in the treatment T6 (T1 + 25%NPK fertilizers).  As a result, 25% increase of N, P and K fertilizers in STB fertilizer doses might be recommended for BRRI dhan30 cultivation in saline areas of Bangladesh.
