A field experiment was conducted to find out the effect of different intercrops on growth and yield attributes of American cotton under dryland condition during kharif season of 2014-15 at the farm of AICRP for Dryland Agriculture, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (Maharashtra). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design, replicated thrice with eleven treatments. Maximum plant height (71.23 cm), leaf area (1462 cm2) and leaf area index (0.81) were recorded in cotton + clusterbean intercropping system than other cropping system. While maximum number of monopodial (2.33), number of sympodial (15.33), number of functional leaves (46.69), total dry matter accumulation (70.86 g), number of picked bolls per plant (8.93), boll weight (2.88 g), seed cotton yield plant-1 (26.51g) and Seed cotton yield (1266 kg ha-1) were recorded significantly in sole cotton. Seed cotton equivalent yield (1958 kg ha-1) and land equivalent ratio (1.46) was recorded highest in cotton + cowpea.
