Abstract


A field experiment entitled crop diversification and intensification of rice based cropping systems under irrigated condition of Madhya Pradesh was taken at J.N. Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya farm of Kuthulia College of Agriculture Rewa during 2010-11 and 2011-12. The study reveals that grain yield of rice increased by 17.12 per cent in rice-berseem, 13.97 per cent in rice-musturd, 13.37 per cent in ricechickpea+ linseed and 10.43 per cent in rice green pea-wheat cropping system as compared to rice-wheat cropping system. The rice equivalent yield of different cropping system was increased by 36.39 per cent in rice-berseem, 41.02 per cent in rice-potato-wheat, 87.43 per cent in ricegarlic, 88.08 per cent rice-toria-onion and 26.79 per cent in ricegreenpea-wheat cropping system as compared to rice-wheat cropping system. The gross and net return was maximum in rice-toria-onion cropping system (Rs- 244896/ha and 152922/ha) followed by rice-garlic (Rs-244039/ ha and 114601/ha) and rice-berseem (Rs- 195960/ha and 140830/ha) which were 26.5 per cent to 68.8 per cent higher than rice-wheat cropping system. The benefit : cost ratio was maximum 3.55 in rice-berseem followed by 3.17 in rice-greenpea-wheat and 3.07 in rice-chickpea +linseed inter cropping.
