IMPROVING FARM INCOME BY INTERCROPPING AROIDS WITH BEANS

During the cropping seasons of 1984 and 1985, experimental trials were conducted on farmers' holdings in St. Vincent where tannia and/or dasheen were intercropped with lima beans. Economic analyses of the different intercropping systems indicated that farm incomes were increased from intercropping. Incomes from tannia and dasheen were higher due to the presence of bean intercrops in the system. Returns from beans in the intercrop systems were significantly greater than the additional cost of growing the bean in the systems.
