Gliricidia sepium with cacao and pepper in Brazil: alley cropping with Gliricidia in the establishment of cacao; sequential multiple cropping with Gliricidia in the establishment of cacao



Gliricidia sepium with cacao and pepper in Brazil: alley cropping with Gliricidia in the establishment of cacao; sequential multiple cropping with Gliricidia in the establishment of cacao



Nitrogen Fixing Tree Research Reports 6: 54-56



Preliminary results are described from trials in Bahia, Brazil. In the first trial, G. sepium and Leucaena leucocephala (K8) were established as shade trees at 3.0x1.5 m spacing in a low fertility oxisol. Alternate tree rows were pruned to about 1.2 m height every 8-12 wk, depending on the amount of shade given to young cacao planted in the alleys between the shade trees at 3.0x3.0 m spacing. Prunings were left on the soil surface as mulch.
