Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted in Eastern Block farm, Department of Agronomy, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore during Kharif season (July-October) of 2019. The experiment was designed in split plot design and replicated thrice. In main plots viz., crop geometry [M1-Pearlmillet in 45 x 15 cm, M2-Pearlmillet in 60 x 15 cm, M3-Pearlmillet in paired row sowing 30/60 X 15 cm and M4-Pearlmillet in paired row sowing 30/90 x 15 cm] and intercropping [S1-Greengram, S2-Sesame and S3-No intercrop] were allotted in subplots. Statistically there was no significant influence by crop geometry and intercropping on plant height. Crop geometry influence the number Higher LI was found in M­1 (45cm X 15cm) at all the stages of crop and lower LI was observed in­ M­4 (Pearlmillet in paired row sowing 30/90 x 15 cm). From the above results main crop as well as intercrop may grow well in paired row sowing 30/90 x 15 cm because the intercrops receive more solar radiation.
