Abstract:

The experiment was conducted on intercropping of spring groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) with spring groundnut + maize (fodder), spring groundnut + cowpea (fodder), spring groundnut + cluster bean (fodder), sole spring groundnut sole maize (fodder), sole cowpea (fodder) and sole cluster bean (fodder) in spring season of 2016 at research farm, department of agronomy, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana. Two genotypes of spring groundnut comprise TAG 37 A and SG 99 were taken in main plots and seven intercropping systems in sub plots in a split plot design with three replications. Land equivalent ratio (LER), Area time equivalent ratio (ATER), aggressivity (A), competitive ratio (CR), monetary advantage index (MAI), the difference was non-significant in TAG 37 A and SG 99 genotypes. LER, ATER, aggressivity (A) revealed that, all applied intercropping efficient than sole cropping. The lowest amount of competition index (CI) (1.60) was observed in the treatment of spring groundnut + maize (fodder). The highest amount of MAI (39210.6) was observed in the treatment of spring groundnut + maize (fodder).


Keywords: LER (Land Equivalent Ratio), Area time equivalent ratio (ATER), Aggressivity (A), Competition Index (CI) and monetary advantage index (MAI)
