  • On-farm experiments were conducted in the Philippines to study over a 4-year period the growth of two timber trees, gmelina (Gmelina arborea R. Br.) and bagras (Eucalyptus deglupta Blume), and their impact on the grain yield of intercropped maize. The experiment consisted of maize monocropping plots (control) and maize intercropped between trees planted in block (2 × 2.5 m), and hedgerow arrangement (1 × 10 m). Three maize crops were planted in the block plots before canopy closure, and seven… CONTINUE READING
