Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during 2013-14 and 2014-15 at Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. The objective of our study was to establish an understanding of how nutrient uptake and wheat yield can be improved and how land configuration and tillage practices can be modified to be more efficient in water use through layering of precision- conservation crop management techniques. The experiment consisting of five tillage practices T1- Wide raised beds, T2- Narrow raised beds, T3- Conventional tillage, T4- Reduced tillage, T5- Zero tillage and three treatments viz I1 – IW/CPE 0.45, I2 - IW/CPE 0.60, I3 - IW/CPE 0.75was laid out in split plot design with three replications. Tillage practices influenced the grain yield significantly during both the years of study. During 2013-14 T1 (wide raised beds) recorded the maximum grains yield (48.96 q ha-1) and T2 (narrow raised beds) remained statistically at par with it. Increase in level of moisture content by furrow irrigated raised beds techniques increased the N, P and K uptake from T5 and formT1 treatment and with water regime IW/CPE 0.75 (I3) during both the years of study, respectively.
