Abstract

Field experiments were conducted during kharif and rabi 2000 to study the influence of short duration grain legumes (cowpea and greengram) on the productivity of succeeding finger millet under rainfed conditions. Results revealed that maximum dry matter production and vegetable yield was obtained in cowpea (CO 2), as compared to greengram (Pusa bold). In succeeding finger millet crop, higher grain and straw yield were obtained when the haulms of previous cowpea were incorporated after harvest for vegetable purpose. Transplanting of finger millet with phosphorus application recorded higher grain yields as compared to other treatments.
