Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2017 at the Experimental Farm, Agronomy Section, College of Agriculture, Parbhani (Maharashtra). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. There were total 8 treatments combination consisting 3 row spacing of pigeonpea combined with 2 intra-row spacings and 2 sole cropping treatments of pigeonpea and Pearl millet in the recommended spacing of respective crops added. The intercropping system of pigeonpea + pearl millet crops was tried with row proportion of 1 : 1, 1 : 1, 1 : 1, 1 : 1, 1 : 2 and 1 : 2 in 90 cm x 30 cm, 90 cm x 45 cm, 120 cm x 30 cm, 120 cm x 45 cm, 150 cm x 30 cm and 150 cm x 45 cm planting geometry of pigeonpea in treatments T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and T6 respectively. Studied planting geometry of sole treatments T7 and T8 of pigeonpea and pearl millet were 90 cm x 20 cm and 45 cm x 15 cm respectively. Among all the treatments of pigeonpea + Pearl millet intercropping system. The sole pigeonpea (T7) and sole pearl millet (T8) gives higher growth attributes. The highest PEY is observed in sole pigeonpea with planting geometry (90 x 20cm) (2073 kg ha) which was followed by treatment T1, T3 and T5 i.e. row ratio 1: 1 (90 x 30cm), 1:1 (120 x 30cm) and 1: 2 (150 x 30cm). Hence intra-row spacing 30cm under, 120cm and 150cm of pigeonpea row spacing along with 1: 1, 1: 1 and 1: 2 pigeonpea + pearl millet row proportion produced higher pigeonpea equivalent yield than intra row spacing 45 cm in intercropping system
