Abstract:
Mono-cropping style production has significant problems and that there exists a sufficient justification for studying intercropping approaches. Intercropping provide insurance against risk and give stable returns even under unfavorable weather conditions The most common advantage of intercropping is the production of greater yield on a given piece of land by making more efficient use of the available growth resources using a mixture of crops of different rooting ability, canopy structure height and nutrient requirements based on the complementary utilization of growth resources by the component crops.. Turmeric is native to Asia and India. India has dominated in turmeric production at world level and Guava is also important fruit crops of India. The study was conducted to assess the potential of different turmeric verities as intercrop with guava at different planting spacing (10, 20 and 30 cm). The result showed that turmeric yield was higher when grown with 20 X 20 cm planting distance. The overall performance of Narendra Haldi-1 was better than the other two varieties (NDH-2 and NDH-3) in terms of yield when it intercrops with guava plantations. The study emphasizes that guava plantation may be intercrop with turmeric to harvest the maximum potential of resources.
