  The farmers of the rainfed areas are usually reluctant to use the recommended dose of fertilizers. This study was undertaken on the farmers field as adaptive research trials with the idea, whether the economic risk which is the main hindrance in adapting the recommended dose of fertilizers, is possible to be minimized by using its smaller doses. Fertilizers doses significantly affected biological, bhoosa yield and grain yield kg ha–1. Highest bundle weight and bhoosa kg ha–1 were recorded with the application of 2.5 bag of each Urea and DAP ha–1 and also with the application of 1.25 bag Urea and 2.5 bag DAP ha–1. Maximum grain yield of (2405-2500 kg ha–1) were obtained in T1, T2 and T3 respectively.

  The research study was conducted at two locations i.e. Barani Agricultural Research station (Kohat) and Barani Seed Farm (Hangul to ascertain the biological efficient and economic efficient intercropping system of maize with cowpeas and mungbean. The studies consisted of five intercropping systems (maize sole, cowpeas sole, mungbean sole, maize + cowpeas and maize + mungbean). The results regarding LER showed that maize + cowpeas intercrop average of two locations was 1.29 indicating 29 percent yield advantage which is also biological efficient system. The maize + mungbean indicating 4 percent yield advantage. However, the economic analysis gave a different results which showed that mungbean sole crop gain highest BCR value (return per rupee invested i.e. Rs. 4.82) followed by cowpeas sole crop (Rs. 4.13). It is concluded that apart from biological efficient different economic indices should be computed for comparison and final recommendation for wide spread adoption.
