Field experiments were conducted during winter season 2013-14 to study the effect of various row arrangements on quality and nutrient dynamics of linseed + dwarf field pea were investigated. The highest grain and straw yield, protein and oil content were recorded in T8 followed by T9 whereas highest protein and NKP content were recorded in T11 followed by T5. In case of dwarf field pea highest grain, straw and protein yield was recorded in T11 followed by T5 whereas highest protein and NPK content were recorded in T8. None of the row arrangement was show superiority over sole crop of either linseed or field pea.
