There was deficit rainfall of 51%, 54%, 63% and 28 % during June, July, August and September, respectively (Fig)  due to which the kharif experienced moisture stress at various stages of growth.

                                                           

Normal and Actual (2012) monthly rainfall at  Narotiwada village

Contingency Plan Implemented: To conserve moisture during dry spells, in  pigeonpea (Vipula) + sunflower  (Bhanu) (1:2) intercropping system,  one hoeing at 20 DAS and one weeding at 30 DAS  was done in pigeonpea and two hoeings  viz.,  at 20 DAS and  at 40 DAS was done  in sunflower  in 19 farmers' fields.

Performance: The hoeing and weeding maintained/enhanced moisture conservation resulting in mean (19 locations seed yield of 584 kg/ha and 824 kg/ha in pigeonpea and sunflower, respectively as compared to farmers practice of one hoeing after 15 to 30 DAS which gave low seed yields of 484 kg/ha and 724 kg/ha in pigeonpea and sunflower, respectively.
