Abstract: A field study aimed to evolve integrated nutrient management for improving growth and uptake of rice var. MTU-1010 was conducted on sandy loam soil during kharif season of 2015 at college farm, College of Agriculture, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, PJTSAU, India. The results revealed that application of 100% NPK (T2) through inorganic fertilizers resulted in higher dry matter production and higher N, P and K uptake which was followed by integration of distillery waste i.e. Godavari Kash @ 4 bags + 50% recommended dose of NPK (T8) which helped in reducing 50% recommended dose of N and P, in particular muriate of potash and also expenditure incurred on chemical fertilizers.
