Response of selected legume companion crops to irrigation frequencies

Response of selected legume companion crops to irrigation frequencies

Agricultural Water Management 17(1-3): 257-264

Short term legumes are considered effective companion crops to most cropping systems, including sugar cane during the early growth stages. This is attributed to the ability of these legumes to increase the productivity of the land, especially in smallholder allotments. Hence, a study was conducted to determine the effects of four different irrigation frequencies on the growth and yields of mung beans and bush beans.
