Abstracts

 

Intercropping is a common practice which allows for better resource use efficiency, increases yield stability as compared to monocropping. The present research work was conducted at Horticultural Research Station, Mondouri, Faculty of Horticulture, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Nadia, West Bengal, India from July-December, 2017. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Block Design (RBD) with five treatments and four replications. The treatments were as follows: T0 =cauliflower as monocrop, T1=cauliflower intercropped with marigold, T2= cauliflower intercropped with Balsam, T3= marigold monocrop, T4= balsam monocrop. When cauliflower intercropped with balsam (T2), cauliflower size and quality, balsam flower number and overall yield attributes were significantly increased. Land resource was properly utilized. So, cauliflower intercropped with balsam is the best treatment. This technique will help the marginal farmers for more profit.

 

Keywords :
