Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted on sandy loam soil, low organic carbon, available N, available P and high in available K during the <em>Rabi </em>season of 2016-2017 at Research farm of khalsa College, Amritsar. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Block Design with 10 treatments T<sub>1: </sub>Sole wheat, T<sub>2</sub>: Sole lentil, T<sub>3</sub>: Sole wheat on 67.5 cm beds, T<sub>4</sub> Sole lentil on 67.5 cm beds, T<sub>5</sub>: Sole wheat on 67.5 cm beds (AFI), T<sub>6</sub>: Sole lentil on 67.5 cm beds (AFI), T<sub>7</sub>: wheat + lentil in 2:1 on 67.5 cm beds, T<sub>8</sub>: wheat + lentil in 2:1 on 67.5 cm beds (AFI), T<sub>9</sub>: wheat + lentil in 2:2 on 90 cm beds, T<sub>10 </sub>wheat + lentil in 2:2 on 90 cm beds (AFI) with three replications. Maximum plant height, LAI, Dry matter accumulation, Grain yield, Straw yield, N-content were recorded in 2:1 row ratio of wheat + lentil on 67.5 cm beds (T<sub>7</sub>) which were significantly superior over sole wheat and intercropped on flat and beds (T<sub>1</sub>, T<sub>5</sub>, T<sub>8</sub> and T<sub>10</sub>) and at par with sole and intercropped on beds (T<sub>3</sub> and T<sub>9</sub>).
