A field experiment was conducted in Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Farm, Dhaka, Bangladesh during December, 2011 to April, 2012 to assess the effect of integrated use of vermicompost, pressmud and urea on the nutrient status of grain and straw of rice (Hybrid Dhan Hira 2). Ten treatments coded from T1 to T10 were used in this experiment. The highest amount of nitrogen (1.092%), phosphorus (0.297 %), potassium (0.374 %) in grain and the highest amount of potassium (1.213%), sulfur (0.091%) in straw were observed in T3 treatment receiving 90 kg N/ha from urea along with 30 kg N/ha from vermicompost. The highest sulfur (0.124 %) content in grain and the highest nitrogen (0.742%), the highest phosphorus (0.182 %) in straw was recorded in treatment T2 receiving 120 kg N/ha from urea. The highest amount of nitrogen (93.81 kg/ha), phosphorus (26.07 kg/ha), potassium (32.82 kg/ha) and sulfur (10.79 kg/ha) uptake by grains and the highest amount of nitrogen (55.70 kg/ha), phosphorus (13.79 kg/ha), potassium (92.43 kg/ha) and sulfur (6.91 kg/ha) uptake by straw of rice were observed in T3 treatment. On the other hand the lowest values of these parameters were obtained from control treatment T1.
