Economic evaluation of deep tillage and shallow tillage practices during wheat crop production



Economic evaluation of deep tillage and shallow tillage practices during wheat crop production



Sarhad Journal of Agriculture 22(1): 155-162



Field studies were conducted in Peshawar, Pakistan, from 1996 to 1999, to economically assess the various tillage practices during the wheat growing seasons. Tillage practices were managed with 7 treatments, i.e. cultivator 2 times (C2), cultivator 4 times (C4), cultivator 6 times (C6), mouldboard plough and rotavator once (M1R1), mouldboard plough and disk harrow once (M1H1), mouldboard plough once and disk harrow 2 times (M1H2) and disk plough once and cultivator 2 times (D1C2).
