Weed management studies in sorghum/pigeonpea and pearl millet/groundnut intercrop systems - some observations



Weed management studies in sorghum/pigeonpea and pearl millet/groundnut intercrop systems - some observations



Proceedings of the First International Workshop on Intercropping, 10-13 January 1979, Hyderabad, India: 238-248



Studies were initiated in Andhra Pradesh, India to examine competition between weeds and intercrop systems and increased weed suppression by the inclusion of additional crops. With increase in density of a sorghum/pigeonpea system, there was rapid decrease in weed dry weights. The inclusion of additional "smother" crops like cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.) and mung vean (Vigna radiata L.) minimized weed infestation. These crops could replace hand-weeding without affecting main crop yields.
