Abstract:

An field experiments were conducted to find out economic and land equivalent ratio performance of herbal medicinal crops (basil, kalmegh and mint) under Sapota-Jatropha based three-tier agroforestry system at the Agronomy Farm (Block-E), ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari (Gujarat) during rainy season of 2011 and 2012. The experiments were laid out in randomized block design with six treatments and four replications. Three medicinal plants viz., Basil (Ocimum sanctum L.), Kalmegh (Andrographis paniculata Well.) and Mint (Mentha arvensis L) were selected for the present study. The higher BCR recorded in basil, kalmegh and mint intercroped with Sapota-Jatropha in both the years. While Mint, Basil and Kalmegh recorded higher LER when grown as intercrop.
