2010) reported that an intercropped
system is considered efficient when the LER value is more than 1.
bosqueella adults were captured, representing 60% of total moth capture in the conventional system and 41% of the moths in the intercropped
system (Table 1).
A pot experiment was performed during the 2015 season, in which the host crop sorghum was intercropped
with groundnut at various ratios in presence or absence of Striga.
The experiment was a randomized block design, with three replications, in a 3x2+4 factorial arrangement, with three cultivars of Urochloa brizantha (Marandu; Xaraes and Piata) intercropped
with grain sorghum in two planting systems (row and between rows) and four monocrops (Sorghum, Marandu palisadegrass, Xaraes palisadegrass and Piata palisadegrass).
58 g) was significantly more in sole planted sugarcane than groundnut intercropped
2], consisting of two Eucalyptus rows, interspersed with bread grass and maize, in intercropped
While sweet potato intercropped
with sweet corn did not show significant result on the length of vines, marketable and non - marketable tubers and biomass.
The experiment consisted of four treatments: T1- conventional yam planting (sole crop) fertilized only with cattle manure; T2- yam intercropped
with sunnhemp (Crotalaria juncea L.
2014) stated that a decrease in LAI of maize when it was intercropped
with vegetables (radish, spinach, carrot) over sole cropping.
Minimum thrips density per plant was recorded in onion plots intercropped
with cotton during the study period of two years.
Total soil N was also enhanced, especially where legumes were grown alone or intercropped
because of symbiotic atmospheric nitrogen fixation.
Elsewhere, chickpea is frequently grown as a sole plant or intercropped
with other plants, especially cereals but the focus has been on its agronomic performance and yield, and no reports are available on the effect of the cropping method on its seed nutrient composition and therefore its nutritive value.
