Experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replication and total thirty two treatment combinations was done. . On the basis of result obtained from the experiment it is concluded that the sole crop Soybean i.e. CS1 (soybean -wheat) namely gave significantly higher values of all plant height, seed yield (kg/ha) in kharif and CS2 (soybean +maize-wheat) in rabi and net monetary returns was found highest in CS2 (soybean + maize-wheat). Among the different treatments T1 (minimum tillage), F2 ( the application of 75% RDF + 25% vermi-compost), M2(with mulch).
