Abstract:
Different rice establishment and wheat tillage systems were compared for determining its influence on productivity and efficiency. Establishment methods affected the growth of both rice and wheat, with maximum rice and wheat yield found under direct seeded rice and zero tillage wheat. The tillage methods significantly affected the soil properties as bulk density and infiltration rate were improved. Reduced tillage required 7-11% less energy than the conventional rice-wheat system with highest output energy. The maximum net returns and B:C ratio were obtained from direct seeded rice in combination with zero tillage practices with lowest in transplanted rice.
