A field trial was conducted at Multi Location Testing (MLT) site shibganj under On Farm Research Division, BARI, Bogura during 2018-19 and 2019-20 at farmers’ field condition to develop Mustard-Boro-T.aus-T.aman rice cropping pattern against Mustard-Boro-T.aman rice cropping pattern. There were two treatments i.e, T1: Existing Cropping pattern: Mustard (Tori-7)-Boro (BRRI dhan 28)-T.aman (BR-11) and T2: Altrnate Cropping pattern: Mustard (BARI Sarisha-14)-Boro (BRRI dhan 28)-T.aus (BRRI dhan-48)-T.aman (BRRI dhan-62). Research result obtained that rice equivalent yield (REY) in alternate cropping pattern was 20.32 t ha-1, which is 41.99% higher over existing pattern (14.31 t ha-1). Higher gross return (332370), gross margin (149360) and marginal benefit cost retio (2.08) were obtained from alternate cropping pattern over existing cropping pattern in both years due to introduction of new crop and varieties. Message of this research, the new pattern may be recommended for large scale production to other extrapolation areas in Bogura district of Bangladesh.

Keywords: Crop sequence, Mustard, Boro rice, T. aus, T. aman and Cropping intensity.
