      maize-forage intercropping systems is by using different row spacings (Crockston and Hill, ; Herbert et al., ; Redfearn et al., ; and Polthanee and Treld-ges, ). For example, one maize-soybean intercropping study found the most favorable soybean yields at wider maize row spacings (Mohta and De, ). Another means to Potentially. several sites. The intercropping of lucerne with oats produced greater green and DM yields than those of sole crops of either legume (Table 3). Intercropping of oats with berseem clover provided earlier and greater fodder yields, and increased milk production by as much as 20 litres per cow per month on average compared with traditional practices.

      * Fodder Maize can be intercropped with CO 5 or CO (FC) 8 Cowpea at ratio and harvested together to provide nutritious fodder. TNAU vermicompost at 5 t/ha + 75% recommended dose of fertilizer for intercropping of maize and cowpea produces green fodder yield of t/ha/yr (3 crops/ year) which is sufficient to maintain 7 adults and 3 young. The maize rows should be 25 centimetres from the yam rows, and each maize plant should be beside a cowpea. So, if you look at your field, you will see this pattern – one row of maize, then one row of yams and cowpeas together, then two rows of melons, then another row of yams and cowpeas, and finally one more row of maize.

      The study was conducted to determine influence of cowpea and soybean intercropping pattern and time of planting on yield and Gross Monetary Value (GMV) of sorghum. The treatments were included two legume crops, two time of planting, three planting. taken from the soil in comparison to a maize monocrop (Tsubo, ). Kamanga. () reported that maize-legume intercropping was a more productive system and a less risky technology. Higher crop productivity and efficiency in resource use was observed in maize-bean intercropping systems than in the respective sole cropping (Tsubo, ).

Grain yields of wheat and maize were higher when intercropped with legumes than as sole crops in the absence of external N input.

Deep rooted forage legumes lablab, cowpea and vetch are more suitable for combination with cereals such as maize than with wheat due to the phenological differences between the two crop types. Grain yields of wheat and maize were higher when intercropped with legumes than as sole crops in the absence of external N input.

In this study effect of different planting ratios and harvest time of intercropping maize and cowpea on economical and biological yield and quality of maize forage.

An on-farm experiment was conducted in the dry season of /under irrigation at Jigna rural village of Dera District, South Gonder Zone/Ethiopia.

The experiment was conducted to assess the biological benefits of intercropping maize with fenugreek, field pea and haricot bean. A field have a total of 7 treatments, namely three intercropping of fenugreek. A field experiment was conducted at Botswana College of Agriculture garden to investigate the effects intercropping maize and cowpeas on the performance of maize and cowpeas.

The treatments were sole maize crop, sole cowpea crop, intercrop 1 (spacing of 40 cm between of maize and cowpea) and intercrop 2 (spacing of 30 cm between maize and cowpea.

Maize-bean intercropping is a traditional practice in Latin America, especially in the land-scarce highlands. In Peru, practically all beans are planted along with maize.

In areas of Central America where land is limited and rainfall low, maize is often intercropped with field beans. When maize and beans are intercropped, their yields are.

Cowpea rows were planted in the minor season into cassava as a successive crop to maize and soya bean after their harvest in the major season.

Intercropping significantly reduced grain or tuber yield of maize, cassava ‘Gblemoduade’ and cassava ‘Ankra’ by 23–70%, 16–49% and 24–64%, respectively. of below-ground niche differentiation in root distribution between maize and cowpea. Maize–cowpea intercropping with low doses of N fertiliser resulted in over-yielding compared with monocropping.

Intercropping proved to be a robust option across seasons and soil types, confirming that it is a promising option for resource-poor smallholders.

Results indicated that some cowpea varieties which perform well under sole cropping tend to climb under intercropping. maize-cowpea intercropping. Similarly Patel and Rajagopal () reported increase in green forage yield with maize and cowpea grown in row was and %.
