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.

Sowing in two directions produced significantly higher biological and grain yield with the same cost. Grain production per kg of nutrients used averaged 21.8 kg for sowing in two directions, 20.6 kg for north-south and 19.6 kg for east-west direction. Sowing in two directions showed a significantly reduction (31.4%) dry matter production of weeds, powdery mildew and brown rust.
