A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2005-2006 at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Deendayal Research Institute, Majhagawan, Satna to studies on productivity and economic viability of various wheat based inter cropping systems under rain fed conditions of Kaymore Plateau. The experiment comprised of three intercropping treatments with different row proportions with chickpea, linseed and mustard. The two years study revealed that the leguminous based intercropping i.e. wheat +chickpea in 2:2 row proportions proved better in comparison of other intercropping or sole cropping system in terms of land equivalent ratio (1.36) and total production in terms of actual yield (40.97q/ha), gross return (Rs. 54099), net income (Rs. 42429) and B:C ratio 3.64.

Keywords: Wheat, chickpea, linseed, mustard, wheat equivalent yield, land equivalent ratio, economic viability and intercropping
