    intercropping be made to profit.1 INTRODUCTION In recent years much research has been done on intercropping cereals and grain legumes, mainly in Denmark. The main focus of this research was on comparing sole grain legumes with intercropping grain legumes and cereals. The comparison was made using land equivalent ratio (LER) (De Wit and. Evaluation of cereal-legume intercropping systems through productivity and competition ability. A field experiment was carried out during kharif season of and at Sriniketan Research Farm, Visva-Bharati, West Bengal. Maize crop produced highest grain yield in sole cropping which was statistically at par with intercropping situations.

    o Cereal-legume intercrops can be harvested for biomass or grain using standard cutting, baling and combine equipment (Fig. 2). Grain separators may be useful for separating cereal and legume grain after harvest. If intercropping for grains, keep in mind that species with similar sized seeds are difficult to separate with a sieve. unit time. The intercropping of pulses with sorghum enhances the dry matter accumulation in sorghum as reported by (Kulkarni, and Bainade, ). The beneficial effects of a suitable row ratio for cereal-legume intercropping system can be assessed through various competition functions (Rafey and Prasad, ). RESEARCH PROCEDURE.

    Cereal/ legume intercropping plays an important role as highly relevant in low-N-input systems and organic farming where nitrogen is often a limited resource for crop growth [68, 69]. Fig. (1). Intercropping systems tested at Mornag experimental station, Tunisia, with A 30 u N ha . The intercropping of a legume in cereal crops is most common in the arid and semi-arid areas at the place where a resource is the limiting condition. Many yield advantages have been recorded in many legume–cereal intercropping systems than sole cropping of cereal or legumes including cowpea–maize [1], faba bean–wheat [2], and vetch–oat [3].

This is the proceedings of a workshop on research methods for cereal/legume intercropping in eastern and southern Africa, held at Lilongwe, Malawi on Jan.

SUGGESTIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH Considerable efforts have been devoted to agronomic factors affecting the efficiencies of various cereal-legume intercropping systems.

However, there do not seem to be any general proposals for maximizing the production efficiencies of different by: acquisition in intercropping systems [12,21]. Intercropping is an efficient cropping system in terms of resource utilization [1].

For instance, crops with different traits can explore various organic P sources in P-deficient soils [22,23,24]. Cereal/legume mixtures can achieve higher P uptake on such soils.

Cereal–legume intercropping systems. Intercropping legume with cereal is an extensively applied planting pattern in crop cultivation.

However, forage potential and the degradability of harvested mixtures from intercropping system remain unclear. To investigate the feasibility of applying an intercropping system as a forage supply source to ruminants, two consecutive experiments (experiments 1 and 2) involving a field.

Cereal-legume intercropping plays a pivotal role for increasing land use efficiency and atmospheric nitrogen fixation. A field experiment was carried out on a baby corn–legume intercropping system in and additive series in the eastern plateau region of. Cereal/legume intercropping increases dry matter production and grain yield more than their monocultures.

When fertilizer N is limited, biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) is the major source of N in legume-cereal mixed cropping systems. The soil N use patterns of component crops depend on the N source and legume species.

Nitrogen transfer from legume to cereal increases the cropping system's. Agricultural Research echnology pen ccess ournal Data collection: Sampling strategy and administration of interview questionnaires The research was undertaken in 8 kebeles of 4 woredas in North Shoa, Ethiopia, which were considered to be representative of the practice of cereal-legume intercropping system in the highland areas of Ethiopia.

Introduction. Intercropping is an ancient practice, placed on the fringes of a ‘modern agriculture’ dominated by large areas of monocultured, resource‐consuming and high‐yielding crops (Vandermeer, ; Zhang et al., ; Li et al., ).However, intercropping may be a means to address some of the major problems associated with modern farming, including moderate yield, pest and.

In line with this, a study was conducted at Mekelle University main campus in the northern highlands of Ethiopia to evaluate the benefits and productivity of cereal-legume intercropping under rainfed conditions and with supplementary irrigation, during the /16 rainfall season.

Thus, feasible methods should be established to satisfy roughage requirement for rapid and sustainable development of ruminant husbandry [6,11,12].

Intercropping exhibits a greater forage production performance than sole cropping and is a feasible option for forage production [13,14,15].

R.Much research has been conducted on cereal-legume intercropping as a sustainable intensification (SI) practice in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA). However, the role of inorganic fertilizers in sustainably intensifying intercropping systems has not been systematically analyzed. Therefore, the objective of the present analysis was to assess the role of inorganic fertilizer use in cereal.
