Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during 2016-17 at AICRP on Integrated Farming Systems, PJTSAU to identify bio-intensive complementary cropping systems under I.D conditions for light textured soils of Southern Telangana Zone. Amongst the twelve cropping systems tested, cotton + green gram (1:2) – maize for green cobs system recorded highest MEY (11803 kg ha-1) with Rs 78,820 ha-1 of net returns followed by Bt cotton + soybean (1:3) – sesame + groundnut (2:4) system (10155 kg ha-1). Bt Cotton + green gram (1:2) – maize for green cobs system removed significantly higher nitrogen (189.2 kg ha-1) and potassium (158.4 kg ha-1). Removal of phosphorus was significantly more by all maize based cropping systems. The Post harvest soil analysis after kharif and also at the end of different crops/cropping systems did not show any remarkable changes in pH, EC, organic carbon, available potassium and phosphorus.
