A field experiment was conducted at the Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Shenda Park, Kolhapur (Maharashtra) during kharif 2016-17 to 2018-9 to study the performance of intercropping of niger oilseed in little millet. The experiment was laid out in randomized completely block design with nine treatment combinations replicated thrice. The three year pooled data revealed that growing of little millet + niger in 4:1 row proportion recorded highest gross (Rs.45156/-) and net monetary returns (Rs.12298/-) with maximum benefit cost ratio (1.37) and little millet grain equivalent yield (10.93 q ha-1) with maximum LER value (1.38) compared to other intercropping treatments. The increased net monetary returns and grain equivalent yield were 54.98 and 4.10 per cent over sole crop of little millet, respectively.

Keywords: Intercropping systems, little millet grain equivalent yield, LER.
