A field experiment involving two plant densities (83,333 and 166,666 plants per hectare), two cropping systems (monoculture and mixed culture) and five cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp.) genotypes (3 farmer-selected varieties: Bensogla, Sanzie and Omondaw, and 2 breeder-improved cultivars: ITH98-46 and TVuI509) was conducted for two years in 2005 and 2006 at Nietvoorbij (33°54S, 18°14E), Stellenbosch, South Africa, to evaluate the effect of these treatments on the growth and symbiotic… CONTINUE READING
