Abstract
The study aimed to determine the potentials of various agro-ecosystem in producing favorable growth and yield of upland rice including biomass production and carbon storage. Results of the study revealed that hinumay and dinorado were performed significantly better in plant height, yield, biomass and carbon content as compared to other varieties. However, in terms of panicle length and number of tillers, it was found out that kawilan variety perform better but it is not significantly different with hinumay and dinorado. With the current findings, hinumay and dinorado were the best upland rice varieties to be cultivated under oil palm, coconut and rubber tree but not to banana agro-ecosystem. On the other side, for early flowering and maturity, it was found out that the 90 days variety significantly bear flower and matured earlier as compared with the other upland rice varieties.
