Zero-tillage playing an important role in enhancing wheat productivity and it leads to enhance economic and environmental benefits. Looking the importance of technology, present study was an attempt to find out the impact of zero-tillage on environment and farmers’ livelihood sustainability in Western plain agro-climactic zone of Uttar Pradesh. Present study was based on primary data and it was conducted in two villages of Ghaziabad district. Study suggests that after adoption of zero-tillage, the cost of cultivation of wheat crop was reduced as compared to conventional method of wheat cultivation. After adoption of zero-tillage, the incremental wheat yield i.e. grain and bhusa was found to be 6.21 and 6.18 quintal respectively. The economic benefit due to the adoption of zero-tillage was estimated to be `18662.96 per hectare. Due to adoption of zero-tillage carbon emission was reduced by 23.93 kg per hectare and irrigation water was saved by 1347.50 m3 per hectare.
