This study was conducted to evaluate the impact of conventional and conservation rice-wheat cropping systems on soil properties, grain yield, and water/system productivities established at two experimental sites (Nankana Sahib and Sheikhupura). There were two rice production systems viz. DSAR, and puddled transplanted flooded rice (PudTR). After rice harvest, wheat was planted after plough tillage (PTW) or through no-till. The study was repeated over time and space. At both sites, higher total nitrogen (N), soil organic carbon (SOC), soil microbial biomass carbon (MBC) and soil microbial biomass nitrogen (MBN) were recorded in DSAR than PudTR. The DSAR yielded 3.8 Mg ha−1, against 3.6 Mg ha−1 in PudTR at Sheikhupura, while the similar paddy yield of 4.2 Mg ha−1 was harvested in DSAR and PudTR at Nankana Sahib. Overall, the adoption of DSAR saved 19% water compared with PudTR. Net benefits of US $729 and 601 ha−1 were obtained from DSAR, against US $604 and 403 ha−1 in PudTR, at Nankana Sahib and Sheikhupura, respectively. The highest water productivity of 3.01 and 3.43 kg ha−1 mm−1 was recorded in DSAR compared to 2.41 and 2.50 kg ha−1 mm−1 in PudTR at Nankana Sahib and Sheikhupura, respectively. The performance of wheat was better when grown after DSAR than PudTR for both experimental sites during both years. The higher total N (0.32 g kg−1), SOC (3.75 g kg−1), soil MBC (165 μg g−1) and soil MBN (611.4 μg g−1) were recorded for DSAR-NTW at both sites. The system productivity (output: input ratio) was 1.89 for DSAR-PTW at Nankana Sahib, and 1.87 for DSAR-NTW at Sheikhupura. In conclusion, DSAR followed by NTW was the best resource conservation technology to sustain the productivity of RWCS, and improve the net profit and the soil properties.",
