Zero tillage method of sowing

Use of Zero Tillage in Rice-Wheat Cropping System

There exits perpetual problem of late sowing in those areas where wheat is grown after rice. It has been reported that planting of wheat beyond 25th November reduces yield @ 30 kg/ha/day or more. This loss can be reduced or compensated by the use of zero-tillage which advances sowing by a week at least at the same time saving money spent on ploughing and other operations.
