Abstract:

An assessment trial was conducted at farmer’s field of adopted village Awalia of RVSKVV, Krishi Vigyan Kendra Dhar, M. P. during the rabi season, 2016-17. Among the various cucurbits polyculture with tomato on raised bed, the higher return obtained from the polyculture with ridge gourd and tomato on raised bed cultivation. It is concluded that polyculture are not contradicted by the observation that one monoculture can be the most profitable method per ha. As long as there is a sufficient market demand for the other crop to be grown at all, it may best be grown in polyculture, rather than by taking land away entirely from production of the more valuable crop. Monoculture leads the higher production with high cost of cultivation and increasing the incidence of insect, pest and diseases. While, polyculture is the best way to reduce the constraints and it effective for the farmers to doubling the income and ensure the production even in adverse climatic condition
