EXPERIENCE IN BARBADOS WITH INTER-CROPPING AND ROTATIONAL-CROPPING WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON MECHANISATION

The Barbados Sugar Industry has a long history of inter-cropping and rotational-cropping, especially with root crops like sweet potatoes and yams. As recently as 1946, 25% of the acre-months were devoted to non-cane crops on sugar farms. The paper summarizes interesting aspects of this experience. Special attention is paid to mechanisation on the non-cane crops in the context of cane farm technology, mainly in Barbados.
