Abstract:

The major conflict in the cotton-wheat-cropping system is the prolonged harvesting of cotton resulting in late planting of wheat causing decrease in yield for every day’s delay in planting after 15 November. This clearly underlines the need for a solution of the above conflict. The now till technique is now being increasingly demonstrated as a way out. The major objective of the present study was to work out the profitability of planting wheat in standing cotton. The experiment was conducted at Adaptive Research Farm Rahim Yar Khan, during 2011-12, to evaluate the technological feasibility and economic validity of relay cropping system by the different wheat seeding rates. The objective of this study was to check the different seed rates of wheat in standing cotton as relay crop. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Wheat variety Sehar-2006 was used with seed rates such as 125,150,175 and 200 kg/ha. The previous crop was cotton in this field, which was sown on 22nd May 2011. Wheat was sown by surface seeding in standing cotton with different seeding rates. Seed rate of 200 kg ha-1 in relaying wheat by surface seeding produced higher grain yield than seeding rate of 150 kg/ha. Yield, yield components and quality traits of cotton were not affected significantly by any of the relay cropping systems. Substantially higher net field benefit was obtained from relay cropping system with seeding rate of 200 kg/ha as compared to wheat followed after cotton.
