Abstract:
The present study “Effect of tillage practices and nitrogen levels on nutrient uptake and economics of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)” was carried out at Experimental Farm, Department of Agriculture, Mata Gujri College, Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab during Rabi season of 2019-20. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with fifteen treatment combinations with three main plot treatments of tillage which include conventional tillage, minimum tillage, zero tillage and five sub plot treatments which include nitrogen levels are 0, 60, 100, 120 and 150 kg/ha and all the treatments were replicated thrice. The maximum nutrient uptake by crop, gross return (₹/ha), net return (₹/ha) and B: C ratio was recorded under zero tillage which was at par with minimum tillage and it was significantly superior over conventional tillage. The highest nutrient uptake and economics were recorded under N4 – Nitrogen@ 150 kg/ha which was at par with N3 – Nitrogen@ 120 kg/ha and it was significantly superior over rest of treatments.
