Abstract


A field experiment was conducted to find out the suitable tamarind based intercropping systems under irrigated situation at Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi, Gokak, Belgaum (district), Karnataka. Eleven intercrops viz., ajowan, ashwagandha, brinjal, carrot, chilli, coleus, garlic, ginger, lab lab bean, safed musli and turmeric were evaluated for their performance both under intercropping and sole cropping situations. The yield of the intercrops varied significantly between intercropping and sole cropping. Tamarind based intercropping system with safed musli recorded the highest net income (Rs. 3.152 lakh/ha) while the highest benefit cost ratio was obtained in tamarind + ginger cropping system (4.40) followed by tamarind + turmeric (2.49).
