Abstract:
The experiment was carried out during kharif, 2019-20 at All India Co-ordinated Research Project on Sorghum, Chamarajanagar District, Karnataka, to study the performance of sorghum under sorghum legume intercropping system.

Results of the experiment revealed that treatment combination of sorghum + blackgram (4:2) recorded taller plants (295cm), Increase in leaf area (4760.59cm2), Stem diameter (15.24mm), Earhead length (13.83cm), Ear head width (5.50cm), Earhead weight (61.50g), Sorghum yield (1593kg/ha) and dry fodder yield (13.51t/ha). Combination of sorghum+ blackgram (4:2) is found better under different sorghum+ legume intercropping systems.
