Abstract:
An experiment was carryout during kharif, 2011 at Soil Conservation and Water Management Farm of C.S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur, to find out the “Effect of moisture conservation practices and row spacing on economy of maize (Zea mays L.) varieties under rainfed condition”. This experiment was comprised 12 combinations of 2 varieties of maize, 2 row spacing’s and 3 moisture conservation practices. All 12 treatment combinations were tested in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. The variety ‘Azad Uttam’ (32237 Rs/ha, 13159 Rs/ha and 1:1.59), row spacing of 45cm (30933 Rs/ha, 11520 Rs/ha and 1:1.59) and moisture conservation practices of ridging and furrowing method (33235 Rs/ha, 13220 Rs/ha and 1: 1.66) recorded maximum values of gross return, net return and cost: benefit ratio compare other treatments.
