In both cases the enhanced predator presence is explained by the provision of extra food resources and refuges as proposed by Root (1973), making these desirable characteristics in the plants used to intercrop
. However, there is a confounding effect in the last two studies when reporting a yield increase given by the use of legumes as intercrop
LER = yield of crop A in intercrop
mixture/yield of pure crop A + yield of crop B in intercrop
mixture/ yield of pure crop B
Agronomic modification of resource use and intercrop
Therefore, the evaluation of WSE for intercrop
periods was conducted using only the 4-year system.
Development of maize and palisadegrass plants cultivated in intercrop
under water deficit.

with maize and eucalyptus at 12x2 and 12x4 m spacing's, sown between rows of maize, with distances of 6; 4 and 2m of eucalyptus plants.
The varieties used were Umut 2002 (soybean), Karagoz (cowpea) and PR31G98 (maize) while the cropping treatments were sole and intercrop
So, lentil crop as intercrop
in autumn planted sugarcane can not only increase the output per unit area a, but also can provide mid-season income which eased the burden on the already depleted income of the farmers and can provide them with an option for better input management for remaining sugarcane growing season.
In the intercrop
treatment, snow pea and faba bean were planted in alternating rows.
Crude protein levels, shown in Figure 5, here highest at the start of the evaluation (65 days after sowing) for the lopsided oat-ryegrass intercrop
. This was because oat features superior quality during that development stage due to the large number of leaf blades.
However, information about intercrop
of castor bean with grasses is not found in scientific literature.
Duterte makes his state of the nation address (SONA) this month, Villar, author of the law in the Senate and the legislative body's chair for agriculture and food security, also urged local farmers to intercrop
