Abstract:
The experiment entitled “Evaluation of performance of alternate crops to rice under NSP right canal area” was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Jangamaheswarapuram during kharif season, 2018-19, 2019-20 & 2020-21 with an objective of finding the profitable alternate crop to Rice under non releasing of water from NSP right canal area. During kharif, 2018-19, among the nine alternate crops tested, the castor (84.55 q ha-1) performed better followed by foxtail millet (66.38 q ha-1) as per crop equivalent yields. During kharif, 2019-20, Castor recorded highest crop equivalent yields (65.29 q ha-1) followed by Groundnut (37.42 q ha-1). During Kharif, 2020-21, Groundnut crop (70.48 q ha-1) registered highest values of crop equivalent yields followed by Castor (55.36 q ha-1) crop.
