Effect of intercropping cereal crops with forage legumes and source of nutrients on cereal grain yield and fodder dry matter yields


Effect of intercropping cereal crops with forage legumes and source of nutrients on cereal grain yield and fodder dry matter yields



African Crop Science Journal 10(1): 81-97



A field experiment was conducted in Ethiopia during 1995-97 to investigate the effects of intercropping cereals (maize, sorghum and wheat) with forage legumes (lablab and clover), planting methods and manure application on cereal grain and fodder dry matter yield and fodder nutritive value. The results indicate that intercropping significantly (P<0.001) yielded more fodder (27%) but slightly depressed grain yields compared to sole cereal cropping.
