Abstract:
A field experiment entitled “Productivity of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) + mustard (Brassica juncea L.) intercropping under various row combinations” was conducted during rabi 2019-20 at Research Farm, Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo, Bathinda (Punjab). The experiment was laid in randomized complete block design. The treatments consisted of sole chickpea, sole mustard, chickpea + mustard (2:1), chickpea + mustard (2:2), chickpea + mustard (4:1) and chickpea + mustard (4:2).
Chickpea can be successfully grown in mustard. Chickpea + mustard intercropping system sown at 2:2 row ratio gave higher plant height of chickpea, whereas, sole chickpea resulted in higher dry matter accumulation, number of branches/plant, number of pods/plant, number of seeds/pod, 1000-seed weight and seed and haulm yields and harvest index of chickpea than other treatments. Chickpea + mustard (4:2) recorded the highest plant height, dry matter accumulation, number of branches/plant, number of siliquae/plant, number of seeds/siliqua, 1000-seed weight of mustard than sole mustard and other row combinations of chickpea + mustard. Chickpea + mustard (4:2) gave 6.87 q/ha seed yield of mustard with additional yield of 9.90 q/ha of chickpea.
