Historical data as a guide to selecting systems for intercropping two species

Historical data as a guide to selecting systems for intercropping two species

Experimental Agriculture 18(4): 353-362

A small farmer in the tropics often grows a range of crops to protect himself against failure in a bad season. It is suggested that guidance on the choice of spp. and the proportions between them can be gained by studying past cropping figures, such as those collected for FAO purposes. Two cases are distinguished for systems using 2 spp.: when the crops serve much the same purpose and are interchangeable in use, and when they serve different purposes and a certain min. is required of each.
