Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken during Kharif 2018 at the college of Agriculture, Vijayapura, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad (Karnataka). The objective of this study was to study the effect of different vegetables intercrops on growth, yield and economics of sweet corn and vegetable intercropping systems. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications and ten treatments. These ten treatments comprised of sweet corn as a base crop and fenugreek, spinach, Amaranthus and dill as intercrops. The sole sweet corn (90 cm × 20 cm) recorded significantly higher growth parameters namely leaf area and LAI at different phenological stages. Significantly higher fresh cob yield (184 q ha-1) and green fodder yield (295 q ha-1) was recorded by sole sweet corn (90 cm × 20 cm). The increase in fresh cob yield and green fodder yield with sole sweet corn (90 cm × 20 cm) could be the maximum length of cob (24.30 cm), girth of cob (10.73 cm), cob weight (403.33 g/cob) and number of kernels per cob (597) over the rest of the treatments. The Sweet corn (90 cm × 20 cm) + fenugreek intercropping system in 1:2 row proportion was the most remunerative with net returns ( 328178 ha-1) and B: C (8.67) over the rest of the intercropping systems.
