  title={Nutrient Uptake and Balance of Cotton + Pigeonpea Strip Intercropping on Rainfed Vertisols of Central India},
  author={Dackouo Blaise and Anders Nissen Bonde and Rakesh Singh Chaudhary},
  journal={Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems},
Nutrient uptake and balance of the cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) + pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan(L.) Millsp.), a traditional strip intercropping system practiced on the rainfed Vertisols of central India is not known to us. On-farm participatory trials were conducted on 10 farmer fields, five each on medium deep (MDS) and deep soils (DS) of Nagpur, central India to determine the effect of technological interventions on N, P and K uptake of cotton and pigeonpea. The nutrient balance was also… CONTINUE READING
