Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2019 on sandy loam soils of dryland farm of S.V. Agricultural College, Tirupati campus of Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University. The results of the experiment revealed that among the different intercropping systems, little millet + greengram (4:2) (T6) recorded significantly higher plant height, leaf area index, dry matter production followed by little millet + cowpea (4:2) (T7). Lower values of these growth parameters were recorded with little millet + cluster bean (4:2) (T8). Maximum number of tillers m-2, panicles m-2, panicle weight and test weight were registered with intercropping system of little millet with greengram (4:2) (T6) followed by little millet + cowpea (4:2) (T7). Higher grain and straw yield were recorded with little millet + greengram (4:2) (T6) and the lower values were obtained with little millet + cluster bean (4:2) (T8). As regards to sole and intercropping systems, higher little millet grain and straw yield was recorded with sole little millet (T1).
