Maize Based Conservation Agriculture Production Systems (CAPS) Improves Crop Yield, System Productivity and Profitability in Rainfed Uplands of India
Conservation farming result systems (CAPS), individual of the atmosphere companionable approaches, aid in maintaining soil quality, output, and peasants pay after deductions. Through a system output an d worth study, belongings of diminished tillage, intercropping, and cover cutting methods tailor-made for maize-located systems were evaluated over a three-period ending (2011-2014) in rainfed uplands of Odisha, India. Results showed maize seed yield acted not disagree considerably over time or between CAPS situations while cowpea yield was thought-out as an additional yield in intercropping structures. The entire CAPS exercise had considerably higher whole output and net benefit than common ranchers practice.
