Intercropping tree legumes with annual crops



Intercropping tree legumes with annual crops



Plant research and agroforestry: 103-114



Some factors influencing the choice of tree spp. for inclusion in a system of agroforestry are outlined and studies on intercropping Leucaena leucocephala with various annual crops in Nigeria and with maize and beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) at CIAT, Colombia, are briefly reviewed. A 2-yr system using maize, beans and cassava in combination with L. leucocephala to provide support, forage and firewood is suggested.
