The experiment was carried out at S.G. College of Agriculture and Research Station, Jagdalpur, Bastar, IGKV, Raipur (C.G.) during the Kharif season of 2022 with a split plot design as the experimental setup. The plant height was significantly affected, with M3 resulting in the tallest plants, followed by M1 and M2 producing the shortest plants. Maize crop consistently showed taller plants throughout growth stages compared to other crops. C1 (Rice) had the highest tiller count, while cowpea exhibited the most branches. M3 outperformed other treatments significantly in number of grains per panicle, cobs per plant, and pods per plant. Finger millet (C3) showed notably high results for grains per panicle. M3 also had significantly higher test weight, while cowpea had higher test weight than other crops, and sesame had the lowest. Broad bed furrow with rice and cowpea displayed significantly higher test weight, similar to M1. M3 excelled in grain yield per hectare, whereas M2 had the lowest. Cowpea had notably higher green pod yield. M3 recorded the highest harvest index, similar to M1 and M2. Maize had significantly higher harvest index, while sesame had the lowest.
