Abstract:

The study was conducted during 2017- 2019 in Katharighatta and Jodighatta village of Channarayapatna Taluk, Hassan District by the intervention of Krishi Vignan Kendra, Kandali, Hassan as a part of On Farm Test to evaluate the effect of growing intercrops on growth and yield of Tree Mulberry. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with 5 replications and 4 treatments which includes T1 (Sole Tree mulberry) as control, T2 (Tree mulberry + Ragi), T3 (Tree mulberry + Groundnut) and T4 (Tree mulberry + Cowpea). The growth and yield parameters of Tree mulberry like average number of shoots/plant, shoot height(cm), number of leaves/shoot and leaf yield (Kg/ha/crop) were recorded significantly higher in T4 (45, 120.34, 29 and 7955.82) as compared to control (31.64, 114.24, 24 and 7809.35), respectively. The cocoon yield attributes like larval weight(g), cocoon weight(g), shell weight(g), pupal weight(g), shell ratio (%) and cocoon yield (Kg/100 DFLs) were recorded higher in T4 (4.56, 1.76, 0.44, 1.33, 25.02 and 70) as compared to control (4.54, 1.71, 0.43, 1.32, 24.94 and 68.41), respectively. Growing Cowpea as an intercrop given higher B:C (2.63) due to increased soil fertility, higher leaf yield, cocoon yield and additional income as compared with other intercrops (Ragi- 2.56, Groundnut-2.46) and control (2.54).
