Abstract:

An experiment was executed with ten crop sequences during 2010-17 at C.S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh under All India Coordinating Research Project on Cropping Systems. All these sequences were evaluated for yield, economics, profitability and to identify the remunerative cropping sequence among rice and maize based cropping sequences. Results revealed that Hyb. Rice-Wheat and Maize-Mustard-Onion cropping sequences were most economically efficient among rice and maize based cropping sequences respectively. Hyb. Rice-Wheat fetched highest B: C ratio of 3.24 followed by Maize-Mustard-Onion (3.21) while lowest B: C ratio (1.86) was recorded by Maize + Green gram-Potato-Wheat. Highest crop profitability (Rs.774.79 /ha/day) and system profitability (Rs.1075.28 /ha/day) were recorded by Maize + Black gram-Potato-Onion cropping sequence followed by Maize + Garlic-Green gram (G+R) (Rs. 758.34 /ha/day and Rs. 890.04 /ha/day, respectively).
