Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2016 at three different places i.e., in the blocks A, B and C of SHIATS Model Organic Farm (SMOF), which comes jointly under Department of Agronomy (NAI) and MSCNE, Faculty of Agriculture, SHUATS and two villages named Pahal kapula and Kadiyan, Allahabad (U.P.). The experiment was conducted to study Efficacy of rice duck farming on boosting the grain yield of rice [Oryza sativa (L.) sub species japonica] in NEPZ, INDIA. Effect of two different integration (R1: Rice-Duck system R2: Rice (Control plot), effect of two production system (S1: Organic Production System S2: Conventional Production System) and effect of two different planting method (M1: Machine transplanted M2: Hand transplanted) was laid out in RBD with 8 treatment and 3 replications. The results revealed that there was significant and highest dry weight (14.95 g hill-1) and harvest index (40.45%) was observed in T3 (RDS + CPS + Machine transplanted) and same treatment recorded higher grain yield (4.00 t ha-1) through non-significant which was found to be 95% higher compared with the lowest grain yield (2.05 t ha-1) recorded in treatment T5 (Control + OPS + Machine transplanted).
