Abstract

Field experiments were conducted for two years to evaluate the production potential
of some maize based cropping systems under rainfed conditions. Rotations that involved
leguminous crop as cereal-oilseed or cereaHallow crop rotations both In respect of net
Income as well as total grain production. Maize+arhar-wheat gave maximum net revenue
per !lear whereas keeping the land fallow during rabi season (maize-fallow) proved to be
most inferior enterprise In respect of net revenue per year.
