Conducted experiments on mustard-mungbean-T. aman rice cropping system to measure the system yield, nutrient uptake and apparent balance in terrace soils of Gazipur. Four fertilizer treatments were considered viz. absolute nutrient control (T1); farmer’s practice (T2); AEZ basis fertilizer application (T3) and soil test basis fertlizer application (T4). The treatments were compared in a randomized completely block design with three replications over two consecutive years. The average yields of mustard, mungbean and T. aman rice ranged from 798 to 1543 kg ha-1, 995 to 1489 kg ha-1 and 3270 to 4521 kg ha-1, respectively showing T4 as the best treatment. Soil test basis fertilizer application (T4) exhibited the highest nutrients uptake by all tested crops. The apparent balance of N and K was negative; however it was less negative for T4 treatment. The apparent P balance was positive in T2, T3 and T4 but negative in T1. Positive S balance observed in T4 but negative in T1, T2 and T3. Zinc and B balance in the system was positive in case of T3 and T4. Highest yield, gross margin and soil fertility have been recommended that the soil test basis fertilizer application is profitable for mustard-mungbean-T. aman rice cropping system in terrace soils. The study indicate clearly an opportunity for the re-adjustment of the N, P, K, S and miconutrients (Zn & B) fertilizer doses for the different rice-based cropping systems in Bangladesh.
