Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2017 at University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad to evaluate different row ratio of chickpea and mustard intercropping system on growth, yield and economics of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) in mustard (Brassica juncea L.) intercropping system. Study had ten treatments including two sole crops (chickpea and mustard) and eight intercrop combinations of chickpea intercropped with mustard in different row ratios. Results revealed that, sole chickpea recorded higher total dry matter production (24.70 g plant-1), leaf area (3.55 dm2 plant-1), leaf area index (1.18), number of primary branches (5.7), higher grain yield (1749 kg ha-1), haulm yield (1969 kg ha-1) and harvest index (46.5 %). Among the intercropping, 8:2 row ratio of chickpea + mustard recorded higher grain yield (1610 kg ha-1), haulm yield (1890 kg ha-1), gross returns (₹ 86,091 ha-1), net returns (₹ 53,706 ha-1) and B: C (2.66).
