Abstract:

A field experiment comprising ten treatments of intercropping systems replicated four times was conducted in Randomized Block Design with during rabi season, 2016-17. Results indicated that sole coriander exhibited the higher plant height and number of branches per plant 60 DAS, 90 DAS and at harvest as compared to different intercropping system. Further, results showed that sole coriander exhibited significantly highest values of yield attributes viz., number of umbels per plant, number of umbellate per umbel, seeds per umbellate, 1000 - seed weight, seed yield per plant and seed yield per hectare as compared to different intercropping system. Sole French radish, sole Knolkhol and sole fenugreek resulted higher plant population, plant height at harvest, number of leaves per plant, diameter of curd and fresh marketable yield as compared to different intercropping systems. Intercropping of coriander with French radish in 1:1 row ratio resulted significantly higher land equivalent ratio (1.83), coriander equivalent yield (4272 kg/ha), gross return (Rs.341728/- ha), net return (Rs.283228/- ha) and BCR (4.84)followed by intercropping of coriander with French radish in 2:2 paired row ratio. Intercropping of coriander with fenugreek in 1:1 and 2:2 recorded significantly higher N, P, and K availability in soil after harvest of crop. Thus, it is inferred that intercropping of intercropping of coriander with French radish in 1:1 row ratio is better for realizing higher system productivity and economic returns.
