A Preliminary Evaluation of Crops Under Two Farming Systems at Coebiti

The grain yields of legumes and cereal compared as sole and intercropping were up to 85% and 53% more, respectively at pasture location than zero pasture. Maize with 6.4t/ha as sole crop at pasture location out-yielded other crop or crop combinations. Intercropping at pasture location was inferior to sole but superior especially maize + cowpea; and maize + sweet potato at zero pasture. Among the intercropping treatments, maize + cowpea with 4.49t/ha at pasture and 3.73t/ha at zero pasture stood first.
