Agro-technology of Intercropping Guara (Syamopsis Psoraliodes) and Mungbean (Vigna radiata)

Himayatullah Khan, Khalil Ahmad, M. Qasim and M. Ayub


An experiment was conducted to study the feasibility of intercropping Mungbean in Guara sown at 30, 45, 60 and 75 cm spaced single, double, triple and four row strips, respectively. Guara sown at 45 cm spaced double-row strips with two rows of Mungbean produced significantly more number of branches, grain and stalk yield ha-1 while number of branches and stalk yield of mungbean were not effected significantly. However, the grain yield of Mungbean was increased significantly in the intercropping system. Among the different planting patterns, guara planted in 45 cm spaced double-row strips in association with two rows of mungbean gave the highest land equivalent ratio (LER) of 1.55.
