Abstract:

In recent years, there has been increasing recognition of the importance of millets in India, since major cereals which are grown on good soils supplied with large quantity of fertilizer, irrigation and pesticide inputs have attained yield plateau. Millets have potentiality of contributing to increase food production, both in developing and developed countries. In general, millets are rich in many minerals besides their better adaptability to adverse growing conditions. Millets are cultivated mainly as rainfed crop. However, these are especially valued for filling specific niches because they often succeed under stressful situation where other crops fail to produce an acceptable harvest. Among different millets finger millet has capacity to produce consistent yield, even without special care. It is considered as poor man’s food and also recommended as the food for person suffering from diabetes due to its medicinal value. For assessment of intercropping (two crops only), different indices have been used to determine advantage of an intercropping system over sole cropping by giving different formulae this paper give the critical review the Finger millet (Eleusine coracana G.) based intercropping for food security in konkan region.
