Abstract

Field experiments were conducted during 1993–94 and 1994–95 to evaluate the performance of yambean (Pachyrizhus erosus) -pigeonpea (Cajanqs cajari) intercropping system from productivity point of view as affected by NK fertilisation and its residual effect on the succeeding mung (Vigna radiata) Marketableluber yield of yambean was significantly influenced by NK fertilisation which increased linearly with increasing levels up to 80 kg ha−1 applied in two splits (22.94 t ha−1, pooled) closely followed by 100kg NK ha−1 applied in two splits (22.42 t ha−1, pooled). For pigeonpea, the maximum grain yield (14.38 q ha−1, pooled), stick and bhusa yields were. recorded with 80 kg NK ha−1 applied in two splits. Highest level of NK (100 kg ha−1) applied in three splits to yambean-pigeonpea intercropping system registered the maximum grain yield of succeeding mung (9.43q ha−1, pooled), which was 33% higher than the control (N0O0)
