Yield and Quality of Forage Produced in Intercropping of Maize (Zea mays) with Cowpea (Vigna Sinensis) and Mungbean (Vigna radiate) as Double Cropped

  title={Yield and Quality of Forage Produced in Intercropping of Maize (Zea mays) with Cowpea (Vigna Sinensis) and Mungbean (Vigna radiate) as Double Cropped},
  author={Hamdollah Eskandari},
An experiment was carried out in 2010 to investigate the effect of intercropping on forage quality and quantity. Maize sole cropped and its intercropping with cowpea and mungbean in replacement and additive design were compared in RCBD in three replications. The results showed that intercropping systems had a significant effect on the dry matter yield, crude protein (CP) yield, neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fiber (ADF) concentration. The CP yield and dry matter of produced…

Forage Production Potential of Maize - Cowpea Intercropping in Maichew - Southern Tigray, Ethiopia

The effect of intercropping treatments on maize forage yield was significant, however, there was no significant difference in grain yield among the cropping systems though T5 yielded higher and higher 100 maize grains weight followed by T4 yield and 21.84g average 100 maize seeds and the least in yield was actually the sole maize T2, confirming that intercropped has at least, some scenario better than sole cropping practices.

Yield and silage quality of soybean-maize intercrop under different mixing ratios and harvest stages

The research was carried out to determine the effects of mixing ratios and harvest stages on dry matter yield and silage quality of intercropped soybean (Glycine max) and maize (Zea mays). A split

Cowpea Crude Protein as Affected by Cropping System, Site and Nitrogen Fertilization

Results showed that cropping system had significant effect on cowpea leaf protein content (P < 0.05), and intercroppedCowpea significantly gave higher leaf protein (26.7% more) content than rotationalcowpea.

Hay quality evaluation of summer grass and legume forage monocultures and mixtures grown under irrigated conditions

Screening of the tested grass-legume mixtures and monocultures with regard to the hay quality indices revealed that mixing grass and legume forage crops was an effective technique in producing hay of a similar quality to that of the forage legume alone, but better than that ofThe forage grass alone.

Effects of varying seed rates of intercrops on forageyield of sweet sorghum

The findings revealed that intercropping of cowpea with 25 per cent seed rate maintained higher green forage, dry fodder and digestible dry matter yield in sweet sorghum as well as the system productivity compared to remaining treatments, however, it was at par with sweet Sorghum+cowpea (50%) intercropped treatment.

Effect of Intercropping Three Legume Species on Growth and Yield of Sweet Corn (Zea mays) in Hawaii

The results suggested that lower competition and/or the contribution of fixed N in the CC treatment contributed to the better growth of corn.

The Major Chemical Constituents of Teosinte Grown as Mono and Mixed Cropping with Legumes in different Sowing Date

Results showed that mixture of teosinte with cowpea sown at 18th April could be the best combination in terms of quantity as well as for major chemical constituents that could reflect better quality of fodder harvest.

Effect of planting arrangements on productivity of cotton + mungbean intercropping systems

An experiment was conducted at the Cotton Research Farm, Sreepur, Gazipur during 2009-10 growing season to maximize the benefit of cotton + mungbean intercropping system through appropriate planting

Effect of Intercropping Cowpea ( Vigna unguiculata L.) with Teosinte ( Zea mexicana Schrad ) on Forage Yield Productivity and Its Quality

It could be concluded that 15kg teosinte+10kg cowpea and 2:2 intercropping pattern in alternate to obtain the highest mixture yield and quality.



Forage Quality of Cow Pea (Vigna sinensis) Intercropped with Corn (Zea mays) as Affected by Nutrient Uptake and Light Interception

The results indicated that PAR (photosyntheticaly active radiation) interception and nutrient uptake were improved by intercropping and cow pea was more competitive than corn in absorbing divalent cations for its high root cation exchange capacity.

Intercropping Berseem Clover with Barley and Oat Cultivars for Forage

To maximize fall forage and increase the legume component of silage harvest, early maturing and shorter-stature cultivars of oat and barley are recommended for cereal-berseem clover intercrops.

Yield and Nutritive Value of Irrigated Winter Cereal Forage Grass–Legume Intercrops in the Southern High Plains, USA

Water can be conserved in the Southern High Plains by irrigating cereals only as needed for germination or to promote fall growth and winter pea improved quality indicators when intercropped with wheat or triticale.
