Green Fodder Yield and Land Equivalent Ratio of Sorghum-Legume Association

Iqtidar Hussain, Shakeel Ahmad Jatoi , Obaidullah Sayal and Muhammad Safdar Baloch

Abstract:
The experiment consisted of two sorghum based inter-cropping system i.e. sorghum+guara and sorghum+cowpea in 1-row, 2-row and 3-row strips including sole cropping of all the component crops. Total fodder yield and mean land equivalent ratio (LER) was fairly high in all inter-cropping treatments but the highest LER 1.89 was recorded for sorghum-cowpea 3-rows inter-cropping system. This showed that 70-89 percent yield advantage was gained due to inter-cropping. However, maximum fodder yield of sorghum was obtained after three months of sowing from all the inter-cropped treatments.
