Abstract

Field experiment to see the compatibility of pigeonpea and greengram intercropping in different row spacing and row ratio was conducted during kharif 1999 and 2000. Pigeonpea as sole crop at 45 cm gave 7.0 to 22.5 and 16.6 to 68.5 per cent more yield and net return ha−1, respectively during the two seasons as compared to other row spacings. Intercropping of greengram in 1: 2 ratio at 75 cm row spacing in pigeonpea was found most profitable combination as reflected by higher MAI (4926). Pigeonpea having 1.94 to 3.25 more competitive ratio proved to be more competitive than greengram (0.31 to 0.53) in intercropping system.
