Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is one of the most important cereal cropsin the world. The production of rice is directly related to the fertilizer management in fields. This article reviews on general overview of the effects of different levels and types of fertilizers on the growth, development, yield, and yield attributing traits of rice. This review shows that the fertilizers containing nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium along with micronutrients are vital for the growth, development and production of rice crops. The integrating organic and inorganic fertilizers enhances the growth parameters and yields of rice. The balanced use of fertilizers improves crop productivity and soil fertility in a sustainable manner without any environmental damage. This study is useful tool to researchers, farmers and academicians who are involving in rice production, research and development. Keywords: Fertilizers, Rice, Growth, Yield
