Abstract:

In India, farming ranges from small to very large farms. Different farmers thus have more or less land, money and access to information and technologies. Intercropping is an excellent technique to increase total yield, higher monitory return, greater resource utilization, risk management and to fulfill the diversified need of the farmers. The present study was carried out to check the effect of different doses [sole citronella, sole maize, sole Bajra, citronella + maize (100%RDF), citronella + maize (75%RDF), citronella + maize (50%RDF), citronella + Bajra (100%RDF), citronella + Bajra (75%RDF) and citronella + Bajra (50%RDF)] of fertilizer on growth attribute and yield attribute. Experiment results showed that citronella sole cropping was found to be better than citronella intercropping system with maize and Bajra in same proportions (100%, 75% and 50% RDF) in respect to the growth, yield attributes herbage and oil yields of citronella. Maize sole was found to be better in respect of growth parameters (plant population, plant height at 30, 60 DAS and harvesting stage, fresh weight of cobs and dry weight of cobs), yield parameters (number of cobs/plant, length of cobs, number of kernel row/cob, number of kernel/cob and girth of cob) and yields (grain and biological) over all other citronella + maize 100% RDF, 75%RDF and 50%RDF intercropping system in plant population proportions. Bajra sole stand was found to be better in respect of growth parameters (plant population, plant height and number of tiller/plant), yield parameters (day to 50% ear emergence , length, girth and weight of panicle) and yields (grain and biological) over all other citronella + Bajra (2:3) intercropping system in 100%, 75% and 50% RDF plant population proportions.
