Abstract

The un-replicated field experiment was conducted with two sets of treatments (mechanization and farmer's practice) in safflower. Mechanized cultivation in safflower recorded significantly higher yield of safflower than farmer practice. The seed yield increase was 24% under mechanized condition than farmer's practice. Energy productivity (kg/MJ) was higher (0.49) under mechanized cultivation compared to farmer's practice (0.28).
