Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during Zaid season of 2014 to study the Production Potential and Economics of Fodder Maize (Zea mays) Varieties Sown under Varying Intercropping Systems with Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata), at the Research Farm of Division of Agronomy, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu. The treatments include three fodder maize cultivars (African tall, J-1006 and local variety) and cowpea (CL-367) were sown in sole crop as well as in intercropping systems consisting of sixteen treatments in Randomized block design replicated thrice. Among the sole varieties significantly highest green biomass yield, dry biomass yield, net returns and B: C ratio was recorded with African tall followed by Sole J-1006 whereas among intercropping treatments significantly the highest fodder maize green biomass and yield, net returns and b: c ratio was recorded with African tall intercropped with cowpea in 2:1 row ratio. Therefore, African tall variety of fodder maize as sole and African tall variety of fodder maize intercropped with cowpea in 2:1 row ratio was found best for increasing yield potential and economics of fodder maize in different intercropping systems.
