Effect of Different Tillage Implements on Wheat Production in Rice-wheat Cropping System in Saline-sodic Soil

M. Sadiq, M. Jamil, S.M. Mehdi, G. Hassan and J. Akhtar    

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to determine the effect of different tillage implements and rice stubbles as residue on the yield of wheat in saline-sodic soil. Rotavator proved the best among all the tillage implements producing maximum germination counts (35.5 m-2). no. of tillers (289.49 m-2); 1000 grains wt. (45.52 g), grain yield (3.409 t ha-1) and straw yield (3.42 t ha-1). Rice stubbles had better residual effect giving significantly higher values of these parameters than the rice stubbles removed from field before sowing the wheat crop. Incorporation of rice stubbles into soil proved also beneficial in improving health of saline-sodic soil.
