Abstract:

Many intercropping system have proved to be better than sole crops in terms of yield because intercropping makes better use of one or more agricultural resources both in time and in space.  Planting uniformly or nearly uniformly over the land to reduce early interplant competition and increase the rate of solar radiation interception. The principal advantage of intercropping system is the more efficient utilization of soil, water, nutrient and increased productivity compared with each sole crop under rainfed and irrigated ecosystem. Selection of the right small millet intercropping combination is more important in dry land cropping system due to the reason that competition of plant could be minimized not only by spatial arrangement, but also by combining those crops which have best able to exploit soil nutrients. A field study was scheduled to estimate the impact of intercropping varagu with greengram and blackgram cropping system under rain-fed and irrigated situation on photosynthetic efficiency, forage and grain yield at Centre of Excellence in Millets, Athiyandal, Tiruvannamalai. It was done in Kharif, 2018 and 2019. Randomized block design was used to conduct this experiment. It has three replications. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare varagu with greengram and blackgram inter cropping effects on irrigated and rainfed ecosystem on leaf area, relative water content and yield as well as reveal which intercrops better adopts  to rainfed cropping systems using these parameters to improve water use efficiency in the production.
