Abstract

A field experiment to study the yield of maize cultivars (Zea mays L.) Durga hybrid and Jaunpur yellow with or without intercrop of urd (Vigna mungo L) under two levels of fertilizers (120, 60, 60 and 140, 90, 70 kg NPK/ha) was studied. The maximum yield (60.41 q/ha) was found to be with hybrid maize intercropped with urd when fertilized with 140, 90, 70 kg NPK/ha. The number and weight of grains cob−1 and 1000 grain weight (248.9g) was also found to be maximum with 140, 90, 70 kg NPK/ha
