Growth of maize genotypes in alley cropping with Erythrina poeppigiana, Calliandra calothyrsus and Gliricidia sepium



Growth of maize genotypes in alley cropping with Erythrina poeppigiana, Calliandra calothyrsus and Gliricidia sepium



Ciencia Forestal en Mexico 22(81): 133-155



A study was conducted at Turrialba, Costa Rica, during June-December 1992 to evaluate the effect of tree species and row position on the growth and yield of 4 genotypes of maize Maize was established, in alleys of Erythrina poeppigiana, Calliandra calothyrsus and Gliricidia sepium; a monoculture treatment was included. The maize genotypes used were Tuxpeno, H3, H5 and Centapasaquina. The random block with divided plots design was used.
