Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at the rain shelter of Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture in Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Sandakan. This study is to investigate the effect of the different concentrations of Brassinosteoid on upland rice. The objectives of the study were to determine the brassinosteroid effect on the growth of upland rice and to determine the brassinosteroid effect on the yield of upland rice. The experimental design was CRD using 0 mg L-1 (control), 0.25 mg L·1, 0.50 mg L"1, 0.75 mg L"1 and 1.00 mg L"1 of brassinosteroid each replicated five times on Paddy Mutiara. Results were analysed by using Statistical Analysis Software (SAS). The application of brassinosteroid on day 130 shows that there are a significant on the chlorophyll content of the upland rice (F (4, 24) = 4.07, p< 0.0142) and the photosynthesis rate of upland rice (F (4, 24) = 5.30, p< 0.0045). The application of 1.00 mg L·1 is the best treatment. This experiment can be tried with other varieties of upland rice to find out if the results of this experiment are applicable to them.
