Its sole cultivation is often risky and to avoid risks in rainfed areas, generally farmers grow green gram, cowpea, moth bean, black gram and cluster bean in mixed stand as well as in intercropping. Additionally limiting land resources equipped with poor soil fertility status leads to finding way for efficient resource utilization with enhancing productivity per unit area and time, which can be obtained by intercropping and legume based intercropping witnessed higher production with additional benefits which make this more suitable intercropping choice. This review supporting the production scenario of pulses intercropped with pearl millet is presenting in paper to help farmer in making decisions regarding crop selection.
