Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted to investigate the relative performance and the effects of redgram intercropping system on productivity of samai with three different row ratios (4:1, 6:2 and 8:2) during kharif seasons 2016, 2017 and 2018 at the Centre of Excellence in Millets, Athiyandal, Dry Land Agricultural Research Station - Chettinad and Regional Research Station – Paiyur. Among the intercropping system, Samai+Redgram- horsegram (8:2) or Samai +Redgram- mothbean (8:2) sequence produced plant height, DMP, productive tillers / plant, thousand grain weight, grain yield, stover yield and little millet grain equivalent yield (LMGEY). Sequential crop (horsegram and mothbean) yield was also highly influenced by redgram intercropping under system. The highest gross returns (Rs. 53798/ ha), net returns (Rs. 28393/ ha) and benefit cost ratio (2.12) were recorded by samai intercropped with pigeonpea at 8:2 ratio with Succeeding crop of horsegram/ mothbean as sequence crop.
