Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif and rabi seasons of 2015-16 & 2016-17 at the Research Farm, IGKV, RMD College of Agriculture & Research Station Ambikapur, Surguja (Chhattisgarh) to find out the most profitable vegetables grown as intercrops with autumn planted sugarcane. Six treatments formulated with intercropping i.e. sugarcane sole, sugarcane+ radish, sugarcane+ onion, sugarcane+ Spinach, sugarcane+ French bean and sugarcane+ potato in randomized block design. Based on the two years study, onion intercropping was selected as most remunerative in autumn cane with the highest cane equivalent yield (156.30 t/ ha) and gross return (Rs. 484716) among all the intercropping systems. Sugarcane + potato intercropping was also found comparable with sugarcane + onion produced cane equivalent yield of 150.0 t/ha and gross return (Rs. 465000/ha). Whereas, lowest cane equivalent yield and net return recorded under sugarcane+ French bean intercropping system among the vegetables.
