Cereal crops viz., sorghum, bajra, maize and pigeon pea were intercropped with safed musli. The experiment conducted in randomized block design with eight treatments (T1 - Safed Musli + Sorghum (3:1),T2- Safed Musli + Sorghum (3:2),T3- Safed Musli + Maize (3:1), T4- Safed Musli + Maize (3:2), T5 - Safed Musli + Pearl Millet (3:1), T6- Safed Musli + Pearl Millet (3:2), T7- Safed Musli + Pigeon pea (3:1) and T8- Sole Safed Musli) and three replications. Results of three years' experiments showed that intercropping of pigeon pea with safed musli were advantageous in terms of overall yield, monetary advantage and economic return. The most appropriate combinations to realize the maximum advantage from intercropping were (Safed musli + Pigeon pea 3:1) without significantly reducing the root yield of musli
