Effect of seed rate, fertility levels and weeding on the yield of wheat

Effect of seed rate, fertility levels and weeding on the yield of wheat

Agricultural Science Digest 14(1): 5-7

A field experiment was conducted on farmer's field in Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh during rabi seasons of 1983-84 and 1984-85. Results revealed that the seed rate 120 kg/ha (100%) gave maximum yield, net profit and benefit cost ratio over 90 kg/ha (75%) seed rate. Increase in fertility levels significantly increased the yield, net profit and benefit cost ratio of wheat and maximum with 120:60:60 kg N, P-2O-5, K-2/O/ha. Higher production and net profit was obtained with two hand weeding but benefit cost ratio was higher in one hand weeding. It may be concluded that one hand weeding was economically more profitable over two hand weeding.
