Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during 1991–92 to 1995–96 to study the effect of intercroopping in ber plantation on yield and monetary return. Irrespective of intercrops tested, ber based intercropping system recorded 7.0 per cent higher ber fruit yield than ber sole system. Similarly, ber based intercropping system recorded 19.6 per cent more ber fruit equivalent yield than ber sale. Among the different systems, ber+green gram gave the highest net monetary return (Rs. 13099/ha) followed by ber+sorghum system (Rs.11,886/ha). Intercropping in ber recorded on an average 10.0 per cent higher monetary returns (Rs. 11329/ha) over ber sole system (Rs.10287/ha) per annum.
