Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at College Farm, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari (Gujarat) to study the production potential of summer sesamum based intercropping systems during summer season of 2016. The experiment was carried out in randomized block design with four replications and nine treatments. Plant stand per metre row length as well as days to 50 per cent flowering of sesamum was not influenced significantly by various treatments. Plant height of sesamum was maximum in sesamum + green gram (Paired 3:2) (68.64 and 102.59 cm at 45 DAS and harvest, respectively), whereas number of branches per plant and dry matter accumulation were remarkably higher in sole sesamum as compared to intercropping treatments. Among intercropping treatments, sesamum + green gram (Paired 3:2) recorded maximum number of branches per plant (2.65 and 3.55 at 45 DAS and harvest, respectively) and dry matter accumulation (5.45 and 10.53 g/plant at45 DAS and harvest, respectively). Sole sesamum (Normal and paired rows sowing) recorded higher number of capsule per plant, capsule length, number of seeds per capsule and test weight as compared to intercropping treatments. Seed and stalk yield (702 and 1088 kg/ha, respectively) was recorded significantly higher in T1 – sole sesamum and T3 – sole sesamum (Paired rows at 30-30-75 cm), respectively over intercropping treatments. Among the intercropping treatments, sesamum + green gram (Paired 3:2) (T7) recorded maximum seed as well as stalk yield followed by sesamum + green gram (Paired 2:1) (T6).
