Abstract:

A study was conducted at Integrated Farming System Research Station, Karamana, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, to assess the effect of intercropping in finger millet and to assess the effect of AMF on the growth and yield of finger millet. The field experiment was laid out in randomized block design with 11 treatments replicated thrice. The treatments comprised finger millet (with and without AMF) intercropped with pulses, viz., green gram, black gram and cowpea along with the sole crop of all the above crops. The results elicited that both AMF and intercropping had significant effect on the growth and yield of finger millet. The sole crop of finger millet with AMF was found to show superior growth and yield attributes of finger millet. Among the intercropping systems, finger millet (with AMF) + cowpea was found to excel in the growth and yield.
