A field experiment was carried out to study the effect of planting intercropping system in red sandy loam soil at College of Agriculture Navile, Shivamogga during Kharif of 2016 and 2017. Pigeonpea was taken as base crop and baby corn as inter crop. The experiment with varied planting geometry and nutrient management practices consisted of 12 treatments was laid out in RCBD design replicated thrice. The highest plant height at last harvest was recorded with pigeonpea (60-120-60 × 30 cm) + baby corn (30 × 30 cm) intercropping (115.8 cm), Among intercropping treatments pigeonpea (60-120-60 × 30 cm) + baby corn (60 × 20 cm) where both the component crops receiving their RDF separately on population basis registered significantly higher total dry matter over other intercropping systems at all growth stages (6.13, 52.03, and 112 g plant-1) at 20,40 DAS and at harvest. The highest number of babies was counted with sole baby corn sown at 60 × 20 cm apart (7.40) closely followed by sole baby corn of spacing 45 × 20 cm (7.23). The highest grain yield of 2494 kg ha-1 pooled over years was noticed with sole pigeonpea in paired row 60-120-60 × 30 cm closely followed by 2454 and 2346 kg ha-1, It was found that pigeonpea(60-120-60×30cm) + baby corn(30×30cm) receiving respective RDF separately by components crops on population basis recorded maximum pigeonpea equivalent yield (4767kg ha-1).
