Abstract: The present investigation was conducted during kharif season of 2015 and 2016 at agriculture research station, Dhadesugur, University of agricultural sciences, Raichur to optimizing the performance of genotypes to different seed rates and micronutrients in direct seeded condition under Tungabhadra irrigation command. Treatments were tested using split-split plot design with three replications keeping varieties in main-plots, seed rates in sub-plots and micronutrient levels in sub-sub plot. Among various tested combination, higher grain yield was reported in cv. MTU 1010 (5917 kg ha-1) and this was followed by cvs. GGV 0501 (5115 kg ha-1) and BPT 5204 (4663 kg ha-1). Net returns of Rs. 78,084 was higher with cv. MTU 1010 sown using 30 kg ha?1 and applied with both FeSO4 and ZnSO4 this was followed by cv. BPT 5204 (Rs.76,533 ha-1) at 30 kg ha?1 and applied with both FeSO4 and ZnSO4.Similar trend was obtained in Benefit cost ratio of 2.47 and 2.43.
