Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2017 at the Experimental Farm, Agronomy Section, College of Agriculture, Parbhani (Maharashtra). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. There were total 8 treatments combination consisting 3 row spacing of pigeonpea combined with 2 intra-row spacings and 2 sole cropping treatments of pigeonpea and niger in the recommended spacing of respective crops added. The intercropping system of pigeonpea + niger crops was tried with row proportion of 1: 2, 1: 2, 1: 3, 1: 3, 1: 4 and 1: 4 in 90 x 30cm, 90 x 45cm, 120 x 30cm, 120 x 45cm, 150 x 30cm and 150 x 45cm planting geometry of pigeonpea in treatments T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and T6 respectively. Studied planting geometry of sole treatments T7 and T8 of pigeonpea and niger were 90 x 20 cm and 30 x 10cm respectively. Inter row and intra row spacing of niger in intercropping treatments were same i.e. 30 x 10cm. Among all the treatments of pigeonpea + niger intercropping system under rainfed condition, T7 i.e. sole pigeonpea with planting geometry (90 x 20cm) recorded higher pigeonpea equivalent yield (1650 kg ha) and B: C ratio (3.74) which was followed by treatment T3, T5 and T1 i.e. row ratio 1: 3 (120 x 30cm), 1: 4 (150 x 30cm) and 1: 2 (90 x 30cm). Hence intra-row spacing 30cm under 90cm, 120cm and 150cm of pigeonpea row spacing along with 1: 2, 1: 3 and 1: 4 pigeonpea + niger row proportion produced higher pigeonpea equivalent yield than intra row spacing 45 cm in intercropping system.
