Abstract:

This study was undertaken to evaluate the performance of sunflower sown by different methods in comparison to the manual sowing. The yield obtained in manual sown crop with the help of marker was found to be higher as compared to mechanical planter. Maximum gross profit was obtained under mechanical planting with thinning followed by manual sown with marker, which was more suitable than mechanical planting with thinning due to requirement of labour at the sowing time only. Hence, the farmers were advised to go for manual planting with marker and mechanical planting only if labour was available for the thinning.


Keywords: Cost of production, Gross profit, Methods of sowing, Sunflower.
