Abstract

Field experiments conducted during five consecutive years from 1996–97 to 2000–01 revealed that among different sunflower based cropping sequences, the sunflower equivalent yield of groundnut-sunflower was the highest (1555 kg/ha) and found at par with setaria -sunflower (1545 kg/ha) and sunflower - sunflower (1503 kg/ha). However, the net returns and benefit - cost ratio were the highest for setaria -sunflower followed by sunflower - sunflower sequences.
