Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif 2015 and 2016 at the Agronomy Farm, College of Agriculture, SKRAU, Bikaner (Rajasthan) to assess the performance of intercrops against major sucking insect pests of cluster bean. The lowest incidence (4.05/three leaves, 3.46/three leaves and 1.81/central shoot of jassid, whitefly and aphid, respectively) was recorded when cluster bean was intercropped with pearl millet at the ratio of 3:1 and highest incidence was recorded in sole crop (cluster bean). The equivalent yield of cluster bean was highest (1065 kg ha-1) in intercropping with pearl millet at 3:1 ratio followed by cluster bean + green gram at the ratio of 3:1 (974 kg ha-1) and cluster bean + moth bean at the 3:1 ratio (933 kg ha-1).
