Author(s):

Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted for three years during 2017-18 to 2019-20 at Bidi Tobacco Research Station, Anand Agricultural University, Anand to assess the possibility of harvesting an early kharif crop before planting of bidi tobacco in central Gujarat region with the objective of increasing economic returns from same piece of land in a year. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with four replications. The treatments comprised of six cropping sequences. The pooled over three year results revealed that vegetable cowpea - tobacco recorded significantly higher values of tobacco leaf equivalent yield (5763 kg/ha), gross returns (244102 ₹ /ha) as well as net profit (170848₹ /ha) over rest of cropping sequences except, fodder sorghum - tobacco. Significantly lower tobacco leaf equivalent yield (4496 kg/ha) as well as net profit (117727 ₹ /ha) were recorded in vegetable clusterbean - tobacco followed by greengram - tobacco, blackgram - tobacco and sesamum - tobacco cropping sequences.
