ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF INTERCROPPING YAM WITH FOOD CROPS IN ST. LUCIA

Intercropping trials involving yam with legumes and/or dasheen were conducted in St. Lucia in 1985 on farmers holdings and of the Union Agricultural Station. Economic analyses of the results revealed that intercropping did not significantly reduce income from yams. In addition, it was revealed that in most cases, returns from growing the intercrop were greater than the additional cost of establishing the intercrop into the system.
