Performance of Maize in Intercropping System with Soybean under Different Planting Patterns and Nitrogen Levels

Abstract:
To study the performance of maize in intercropping system with soybean under different planting patterns and nitrogen levels an experiment was carried out at student`s experimental farm, Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam during kharif season 1990. The results indicated that plant height, number of leaves per plant, 1000 grain weight of maize increased with an increase in nitrogen levels. Maximum grain yield of 1692 kg ha–1 was recorded from highest dose (120 kg N ha–1). Intercropping of soybean in maize rows did not show any adverse effect on maize plant height, number of leaves, 1000 grain weight as well as grain yield of maize. However, maize under mono- culture recorded greater grain yield ha–1. The results further revealed that Soybean planted alone gave better performance in respect of seed yield ha–1 and yield contributing parameters. While seed yield and other yield contributing parameters of soybean were significantly affected in intercrop treatments due to competition with main crop.
