Effect of conservation measures on erosion, soil fertility and yield of castor (Ricinus communis)

Effect of conservation measures on erosion, soil fertility and yield of castor (Ricinus communis)

Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 63(1): 47-49

Trials on sloping land at Kota, SE Rajasthan in 1986-87 and 1990-91, assessed the use of contour cultivation and intercropping of R. communis and green gram for decreasing erosion and leaching on a Vertisol (Typic Chromusterts). R. communis Aruna was grown in pure stands or intercropped using up-and-down or contour cultivation, and these treatments were compared with cultivated fallow or Dichanthium annulatum.
