Yield economics and nutrient balance in cropping systems based on rice oryza sativa



Yield economics and nutrient balance in cropping systems based on rice oryza sativa



Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 61(12): 872-876



A field experiment was conducted at Faizabad during 1985-86 to 1987 -88 to find out the most remunerative cropping system under the prevailing conditions in eastern Uttar Pradesh of the 6 rice (Oryza sativa L)-based cropping systems. Rice-wheat (Triticum aestivum L. emend. Fiori and Paol.) + Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czernj. and Cosson]-greengram (.PI.haseolus radiatus L.) proved the most remunerative system with a net profit of Rs 12 178/ha/year and 1.07 cost: benefit ratio, whereas rice-wheat-fallow sequence showed the highest cost: benefit ratio. The highest cost of cultivation (Rs 17 337/ha/year) was incurred in rice-potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) + Indian mustard-blackgram (Phaseolus mungo L.) cropping system. This system also gave the highest employment opportunity and the highest rice-grain equivalent. The maximum removal of N, P and K was found in rice-maize (Zea mays L.)-maize + cowpea fodder [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.] sequence. Positive apparent balance of N and P, and negative apparent balance of K was noticed in all the cropping systems except rice-maize-maize + cowpea (fodder), in which negative balance of N was found. Considering the net returns, yields and soil fertility, rice-wheat + Indian mustard-greengram was considered the best cropping system.
