Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 to study row spacing and intercropping in pigeon pea var. Vaishali under rainfed condition of South Gujarat. There were total eight treatments comprising of sole pigeonpea with 120 and 150 cm row spacing, sole greengram and sole soybean, intercropping with greengram and soybean in pigeaonpea with 1:2 and 1:3 ratio. The experiment was laid out in RBD with four replications. The type of soil was medium black and no sever pest and disease incidence were observed on sorghum during the experiment. According to pooled results of three consecutive years the treatment T7 [pigeonpea (120 cm) + soybean (1:2)] gave significantly higher pigeonpea equivalent yield (1222 kg/ha) and was found at par with only T5 treatment [pigeonpea (120 cm) + greengram (1:2)] (1150 kg/ha). The data revealed that maximum net returns (Rs. 44106/ha) and B:C ratio (1.51) were obtained in pigeonpea (120 cm) intercropped with soybean in the ratio of 1:2 followed pigeonpea (120 cm) + greengram (1:2).
