Shakeel Ahmad, Mahboob Akhtar, Amer Sohail Bhatti and Tariq Mahmood    

Abstract: Effect of different tillage intensities in combination with herbicide application or interculture on growth and yield of maize was investigated at Student Farm, Department of Agronomy University of Agriculture, Faisalabad during 1997. Maximum grain yield (4.92 t h–1) along with highest net benefit (Rs. 38660/=) per hectare was obtained for the crop raised with tilling the soil twice followed by herbicide application against the lowest grain yield (2.72 t ha–1) and net benefit (Rs. 20890/ =) per hectare for the crop grown at zero tillage followed by interculture.
