Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify the effect of gamma-ray irradiation on the growth and production of red rice Aek sibundong and Bahbutong varieties. This research was carried out on the farmer's land Jl Sedar, Batang Kuis, Deli Serdang Regency, North Sumatra, Medan. This study used a randomized block design (RBD) with two treatment factors. The first factor is the variety consisting of V1 = Bahbutong, V2 = Aek Sibundong. The second factor is the irradiation dose which consists of 4 levels namely, R0 = 0 Gy, R1 = 100 Gy, R2 = 200 Gy, R4 = 300 Gy. The results showed that the best dose of gamma-ray irradiation in reducing plant height, accelerating the age of flowering and increasing production was 200 Gy. Aek Sibundong variety red rice showed better growth and production response than Bahbutong variety.
