Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during 2013-14 to 2016-17 at All India Coordinator Research Project for Dryland Agriculture, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (M.S.). Treatments consist of seven cropping patterns and two nutrients management tested in split plot design with three replications. On the basis of pooled analysis, the results revealed that, among the various treatments combination Cotton + soybean (4:10)-safflower with application of 100% RDF (through inorganic fertilizer) recorded significantly higher cotton equivalent yield (2103 and 1824 kg ha-1), net monetary returns (Rs45850 and 33394 ha-1), B:C ratio (2.01 and 1.75), RWUE (2.91 and 2.52), sustainable value and yield index (0.94 and 0.81 and 0.85 and 0.61), system productivity and profitability (8.25 and 7.43 kg ha-1 day-1 and 179.80 and 136.28 Rs ha-1 day-1) than rest of the treatments combinations.


Keywords: Diversification, Sequence cropping, Sustainable yield and value index, System productivity and profitability.
