Rice planting methods did not affect wheat yield whereas wheat crop establishment methods significantly affected wheat grain yields and yield components. Planting wheat with the Chinese seed drill resulted in the highest grain yield (2,937 kg/ha) and net benefit (Rs 20,194)/ha). The next most favorable practice was surface seeding of wheat. Surface seeding resulted in the most plump grain and proved to be an alternative for planting wheat on time in the mid- and lower wetlands, where there is excess soil moisture at wheat planting time. This practice could help bring non-traditional wheat areas (Presently sown to rice-fallow) into wheat cultivation (rice-wheat).Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
