Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2016 at College of Agriculture, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth Parbhani to study the effect of crop growth, yield attributes and yield of pigeonpea + niger intercropping system as influenced by planting pattern under rainfed condition of Marathwada region. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Block design with three replication consists of T1- pigeonpea + niger (1:2 row), T2- pigeonpea + niger (1:2 rows), T3- pigeonpea + niger (1:3 rows), T4- pigeonpea + niger (1:3 rows), T5- pigeonpea + niger (1:4 rows), T6- pigeonpea + niger (1:4 rows), T7- sole pigeonpea, T8-sole niger. Pigeonpea equivalent yield (kg/ha) was significantly higher in sole pigeonpea (90×20cm) (1650kg/ha) followed by pigeonpea (120×30cm) + niger in 1:3 row proportion (1384.05kg/ha), pigeonpea (150×30cm) + niger in 1:4 row proportion (1321.6kg/ha) and pigeonpea (90×30cm) + niger in 1:2 row proportion (1311.81kg/ha). Lower pigeonpea equivalent yield was recorded in sole niger with planting geometry of 30x 10cm (646.76kg/ha).
