Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the kharif season of the year 2017 and 2018 at the experimental farm of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Mokokchung, Nagaland to assess the response on growth and yield of maize crop as affected by different intercropping system under rubber plantation. The experiment was laid out in “Randomised Block Design” with seven treatments and three replications. The treatments include sole maize, maize + frenchbean, maize + groundnut, maize + paddy, maize + ginger, maize + greengram and maize + turmeric. It was found that the growth and yield of the sole crop out-performed the rest of the intercropping system. However, it was found that maize + ginger intercropping produced the highest system yield, maize equivalent yield, net income and B:C ratio as compared with the rest of the intercropping system. It can, therefore be concluded that, intercropping of maize with ginger followed by maize+ turmeric may be considered for adoption by farmers’ of Mokokchung district. The intercropping of maize + french bean which resulted in the B:C ratio of 1.85 may also be considered for taking up under rubber plantation, since inclusion of legumes in the cropping system results in maintaining the soil sustainability.
