Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Study on intercropping of fenugreek (Trigonellafoenum graecum L.) with different short duration vegetables” was conducted at the vegetable farm, Department of Vegetable Science, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalrapatan City, Jhalawar during rabi season 2019-20. The experiment comprised of four sole crops (fenugreek, carrot, cabbage and radish) and fenugreek intercropped with carrot, cabbage and radish with three ratios 1:1, 1:2 and 2:2 with a total of thirteen treatments each replicated thrice and laid out in randomized block design. The result shows that the sole crops viz., fenugreek, carrot, cabbage and radish had significant effect on growth, yield and quality over different intercropping system. Maximum plant height (72.73 cm), number of leaves (81.33), chlorophyll content in leaves (1.70 mg/100 g), number of pods per plant (52.75), length of pod (10.36 cm), number of seeds per pod (12.47), seed yield per plant (10.33 g), seed yield per plot (1.24 kg), estimated yield (34.55 q/ha) and per cent crude protein content of seed (21.86) of fenugreek was obtained in T1 (fenugreek sole) over T9 (fenugreek + cabbage 1:2). However, T5 (fenugreek + carrot 1:1) treatment was found at par with T1 in respect of number of leaves (78), chlorophyll content in leaves (1.60 mg/100 g), number of pods per plant (50.46), length of pod (9.68 cm), number of seeds per pod (11.68), seed yield per plant (9.83 g), estimated yield (32.83 q/ha) and per cent crude protein content (20.66) of fenugreek.
