Abstract


A field experiment was conducted during the winter season (rabi) of 1991-92, 1993-93 and 1993-94 to study the performance    of indian mustard [Brassica junced (L.) Czernj. & Cosson] + lentil (Lens culinaris Medikus) and gram (Cicer arietinum L.) intercropping for yield. The highest seed of indian mustard and lentil was obtained with N,P and K @ 80, 17.5 and 33.3 kg/ha from 2.2 and  1.1 row ration respectively. Intercropping of indian mustard and lentil with a fertilizer does of 80 kg N/ha, 17.5 kg P/ha and 33.3 kg K/ha recorded higher land-equivalent ratio and monetary advantage from 1:1 row ratio during 1991-92 and 1992-93 and from 2:2 row ratio during 1993-94.
