Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted in the experimental research farm of the School of Agricultural Sciences and Rural Development (SASRD), Medziphema Campus, Nagaland University during the kharif season of 2016 and 2017 to study the effect of slope and intercropping of Soybean-Maize on Soybean growth, yield and nutrient uptake under different slopes in Nagaland. The experiment was laid out in strip plot design with three replications in which the slope was considered as main plot and intercropping as sub-plot. Under the different cropping systems, sole crop performed better than other cropping systems in respect of growth and yield attributing characters. And on intercropping systems i.e., paired rows, soybean + maize (1:1) ratio performed significantly better in terms of yield. The data revealed that the pods/plant, filled pods/plant and seeds/pod were found to be highest in 0% slope (S1) which was followed by 9% slope (S2) and then 20% slope (S3). The quality of soybean in respect of oil and protein were found to be highest in 9% slope (S2) and 0% slope (S1). The highest N, P and K uptake of the crop were recorded in 0% slope (S2) and sole soybean (T2), whereas the lowest was in 20% slope (S3) and soybean + maize (1:2) [T6].
