Effect of planting technique and weed management practices on ridge-furrow planting of pigeonpea + rice intercropping. Background

Farmers in the region are following pigeonpea + rice intercropping under ridge-furrow system. But due to abnormal monsoon situation, rice crop suffers as a result of severe moisture stress  or severe weed infestation leading to low yield of the system. If sowing time of component crops are shifted on later dates it may result in better crop stand of component crop. Further, proper weed management may also help in optimising the yield of component crops. Considering this in view the present study has been proposed.

Objectives:

  • To identify the best planting method / time for component crops in the system.

 To find out suitable weed management practice for the system

Treatment  

Planting method  (main plot)

P 1- Normal planting (with onset of monsoon)

P2- Stagarred planting (rice-sown in time + pigeonpea 30 DAS)

P3- Pruning in normal planted pigeonpea

Weed control

W1 – Control,                    

W2 – 100% population of both crops

W3 – 150% Popolation of pigeonpea + 100% of rice

W4 – 200% population of pigeonpea + 100% of rice

W5 – Pendimethalin @ 1.0 kg ai/ha as pre-emergence

Design : Split Plot Rep. 3
