Field and laboratory experiments were conducted at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Gazipur, during boro season of 2015-2016 to asses the aroma (%) and economic performance of newly released aromatic rice variety BUdhan2. The variety was grown with three fertilizer levels, viz., recommended (57-10-8-7-0.9 kg N P K S Zn ha-1), 50% higher and 50% lower than recommended level and three plant spacing  (20 cm x 25 cm, 20 cm x 20 cm and 20 cm x 15 cm) representing  wider, standard and closer plant densities. The highest amylase (24.7%) was found in growing seed under recommended doses fertilizer application at standard plant spacing (20 cm x 20 cm) but it contained no aroma. In contrast, strong aroma was found in rice produced by lower fertilizer dose at standard plant spacing though it contained the lowest amylase (23.5%).
