Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted during the Kharif seasons of 2016 at Instructional cum Research Farm, S.G. College of Agriculture and research station, Jagdalpur (C.G.). The treatment consisted of three tillage practices viz. T1- Conventional tillage, T2 –Minimum tillage and T3 – Summer plouging and five conservation farming viz. C1-Opening conservation, C2-Intercropping with redgram, C3-Mulching, C4-Herbicide application, C5-Combination of all treatments (C1+C2+C3+C4). Observations of crops are analyzed in Split plot design having three replications. The result revealed that Weed population, density and dry weight observed significantly heights in conventional and minimum tillage. Whereas, highest grain yield ha-1, test weight and stover yield but harvest index was recorded significantly highest in minimum tillage. In case of conservation farming system Weed population, density and dry weight observed significantly heights in opening conservation and redgram intercropping practices. Whereas highest grain yield ha-1, test weight and stover yield but harvest index was recorded significantly highest in intercropping with redgram during experimentation.
