Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at Regional Fruit Research Station, Vengurla-416 516, Dist. Sindhudurg (Maharashtra) with an objective to study the performance different vegetable crops in new cashew plantation under Konkan condition of Maharashtra under AICRP-Cashew programme during the year 2018-19. The experiment was laid out with 5 treatments viz., Yardlong bean (T1), Bhendi (T2), Cowpea (T3), Chilli (T4), Brinjal (T5) and Control (Cashew alone) under Randomized block design with five replications. The recommended package of practices including the recommended dose of fertilizers and plant protection was simultaneously followed for both main crop cashew and vegetable crops. Among the different intercrops tried during initial year of cashew plantation, Cashew + Yardlong bean intercropping system produced significantly the highest total yield (4.98 t/ha), cashew equivalent yield (4.41 t/ha), LER (1.73 t/ha), net returns (Rs.4,88,702/-) with highest B:C ratio (3.35). The Yardlong bean followed by Cowpea intercropping system showed the highest gain of N, P and K in soil as compared to other intercropping system and sole cashew. In present investigation, Yardlong bean appeared as a best intercrop in fresh cashew plantation for getting the higher returns during Rabi season in Konkan region.
