Inter-cropping studies in maize forage with legumes

Inter-cropping studies in maize forage with legumes

Journal of Maharashtra Agricultural Universities 24(2): 216-217

A field trial in Madhya Pradesh in kharif 1997 compared pure stands of forage maize, cowpeas and guar (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba) with different intercrops of maize with the legumes. Land equivalent ratio of the intercropping systems was 1.32-1.39, and all systems increased net returns compared with pure stands of any crop.
