Abstract:

A field experiment on agro-economic relationship of component crops in wheat-lucerne mixed cropping system was conducted at wheat research station, vijapur during rabi and summer seasons of 2014-15 to 2016-17 to study the effects of mixed cropping system on yield, yield components of wheat and lucerne and efficiency of resource utilization. Mixed cropping treatments registered higher wheat equivalent yield as compared to sole cropping treatments. Further results revealed that the highest (1.83) land equivalent ratio (LER) and B:C ratio (1:2.13) for total grain and straw yields were observed under wheat @ 120 kg/ha (Broadcasting) + lucerne @ 12 kg/ha (Broadcasting), while different treatments failed to exert any significant influence on growth and yield attributes of wheat except test weight.
