1300. Cheema, S.S., D.S. Kler and D.S. Grewal. 1985. Improve wheat yields through bi-directional sowing.. Indian Farming, 35:7-9.
Experiments for 8 seasons showed that bi-directional sowing suppresses weeds, minimises the incidence of powdery mildew and brown rust. Primary yield contributing character was the higher number of effective tillers per unit area. Uniformly spaced plants without overcrowding within the rows, get more solar radiation. Relatively less penetration of light to ground surface resulted in lower soil temperature in bi-directional sowing.
