Abstract:

This experiment focuses on the effect of intercropping and nitrogen levels on the growth parameters of pearlmillet and legumes. The initial plant population of pearlmillet was unaffected due to intercropping and the nitrogen levels. It was nearly equal in almost all the treatments. The plant height and the dry weight of pearlmillet was significantly influenced by the intercropping treatments and the different levels of nitrogen applied. The plant height and dry weight was maximum in the pure stand of pearlmillet (167.6 cm) dry weight (103.0 g plant-1). The initial plant population of legumes also was unaffected with the intercropping and nitrogen levels. A slight higher plant population was recorded in the greengram sole crop and intercropped plots compared to cowpea at different intercrop combinations and nitrogen levels. The nodules plant-1 was maximum in the greengram plots when grown as sole and intercrops. Application of nitrogen at different levels showed significant effect on the nodules plant-1 of cowpea and greengram. The dry weight was maximum in greengram sole crop with 20 kg ha-1 of N (12.36 g plant-1). It was confirmed in our study that the dry weight was higher in greengram compared to cowpea in the sole and intercrop treatments. Maximum pods plant-1 and grains pod-1was recorded in greengram compared to cowpea treatment combinations. The test weight was higher in the cowpea treatments than greengram.
