Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during rabi season, 2015-16 at Students Instructional Farm (SIF), C.S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh to study the economic analysis and crop equivalent yield of citronella (Cymbopogon winterianus) based inter-cropping system in central plain zone of Uttar Pradesh. The experiment was laid out in Randomized block design with 9 treatment of cropping systems with 3 fertility levels i.e. [Sole citronella, Sole Wheat, Sole Mustard, Citronella + Wheat 100%RDF (C+W 100%RDF), citronella + Wheat 75%RDF (C+W 75% RDF), citronella + Wheat 50%RDF (C+W 50%RDF), citronella + Mustard 100%RDF (C+M 100%RDF), citronella + Mustard 75%RDF (C+M 75%RDF), citronella + Mustard 50%RDF (C+M 50%RDF)], were replicated thrice. Results revealed that maximum citronella equivalent oil yield (28.29 kg/ha) was obtained in sole citronella, whereas lowest equivalent oil yield was recorded in C+M 50%RDF (17.50 kg/ha). The highest net income was obtained in C+W 75% RDF (Rs. 44,470.00), whereas lowest in citronella sole. Among the mustard intercropping system highest net return was obtained from the C+M100 % RDF (Rs. 34,605.00) followed by C+M 75% RDF (Rs. 31,304.00). The highest B: C ratio (benefit: cost ratio) was found in C+W 75% RDF (2.01). The lowest B: C ratio was observed in Citronella sole treatment (1.36). Land equivalent ratio (LER) was highest in C+W 100% RDF (1.30) and lowest in control.
