Lock-lodged ratoon added grain yield of 3320 kg-ha (p 15770.00) under low costs of added inputs (p 6963.40) with contributed benefits of p 68570.00 within a short period of 60 days. Lock-lodged ratoon separately generated a high worth of p 146.78-ha.-day compared to wet Season Rice(p 98.13) and Dry Season Rice ( 94.53). Economic contribution of lock lodged ratoon crop with cropping sequences gave a net income of p 31539.68 (p 86.41-ha.-day) in the cropping sequences of Wet Season Rice-Lock-Lodged Ratoon- Dray Season Rice. Lock-lodged ratoon may contribute additional benefit of p 15770.00-ha with added cost of p 6963.40-ha compared to lands left fallow after wet Season Rice.
