Abstract: Field experiment was conducted at Model Organic Farm of Department of Organic Agriculture, CSK Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya, Palampur during kharif and rabi season of 2012-13 and 2013-14 on silty clay loam soil to study the productivity and profitability of legume based cropping systems grown under organic conditions. The cropping sequence mash – garlic resulted in higher soybean equivalent yield (SEY) and benefit: cost ratio, which was statistically at par with soybean – garlic and cowpea – garlic sequences in kharif legume – rabi vegetable based cropping system whereas in kharif vegetable – rabi legume based cropping system, okra – gram recorded higher okra equivalent yield (OEY). OEY was statistically at par with chilli – gram cropping sequence. Higher net returns and benefit: cost ratio was recorded in chilli – gram sequence.
