Abstract:

Investigation was conducted during kharif season of 2016 at Instructional cum Research Farm, S.G. College of Agriculture and research station, Jagdalpur (C.G.). The soil of experimental field was sandy clay loam in texture and available N was low and, P and K were medium. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with two factors namely tillage practices and different conservation farming with three replications. The treatment consisted of three tillage practices viz. T1- Conventional tillage, T2 - Minimum tillage and T3 - Summer ploughing 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). Two crops were taken as a taste crop viz. finger millet cv "GPU 28" and redgram cv "Rajeevlochan". The result revealed that tillage methods produce summer plouging recorded significantly highest gross income, net return, B: C ratio, energy output, energy use efficiency and energy productivity during experimentation. In case of conservation farming, combination of all treatments recorded significantly higher gross income and herbicide application recorded significantly higher net return and B: C ratio among all conservation farming. Energy use efficiency, energy output input ratio, energy intensiveness and energy production were recorded significantly higher in treatment herbicide application and mulching.
