Response of Crop Geometry, Intercropping Systems and INM Practices on Yield and Fodder Quality of Baby Corn
N. Thavaprakaash, K. Velayudham and V.B. Muthukumar

Abstract:
Field experiments were conducted during late rabi 2002 and 2003 seasons at Eastern Block farm of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, India. The texture of the experimental fields is sandy clay loam. The experiments were laid out in split plot design. Two factors viz., crop geometry (45x25 cm (S1) and 60x19 cm (S2)) and intercropping systems (Baby corn alone (C1), Baby corn + radish (C2), Baby corn + coriander (C3)) were taken in main plots and four INM practices (100% recommended NPK alone (N1); 50% NPK + FYM + Azospirillum + phosphobacteria (N2); 50% NPK + poultry manure + Azospirillum + phosphobacteria (N3) and 50% NPK + goat manure + Azospirillum + phosphobacteria (N4)) were assigned to sub plots. The experimental results revealed that baby corn and fodder yields were higher at 60x19 cm spacing level as compared with S1. Intercropping systems did not influence on baby corn and fodder yields. The treatments N3 and N4 registered higher baby corn and fodder yields than N1 and N2. Neither crop geometry nor intercropping systems did influence on fodder quality of baby corn. All the three INM practices (N2, N3 and N4) recorded higher values of quality parameters than N1. However, N3 and N4 values were significantly higher than N2.
