Physiological basis for yield advantage in a sorghum/groundnut intercrop exposed to drought. 1. Dry-matter production, yield, and light interception uri icon

abstract

  • An intercrop consisting of one row of sorghum between two rows of groundnut was grown, together with sole crops of the components at the same intra-row spacing as in the intercrop. Two irrigation treatments were applied: a ?wet? treatment in which water stress was kept to a minimum by frequent irrigation; and a ?dry? treatment which received less water
