Energy budget and efficiency of some multiple cropping systems in Sikkim Himalaya

Energy budget and efficiency of some multiple cropping systems in Sikkim Himalaya

Journal of Sustainable Agriculture 3(3/4): 85-94

Field experiments were carried out in the eastern Himalayas growing rice + soyabeans in irrigated fields, and maize + ginger or maize + soyabeans under rainfed conditions, and compared with central Himalayan cropping systems. The contribution of seed input was higher in the associated crops of ginger and soyabean than for the main crops of maize and rice as it was the only input other than labour.
