Abstract

A medium-duration pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L. Millsp.) is usually grown as intercrop. A wide range of crop combination in pigeonpea-based intercropping systems is found in India and eastern Africa (Ofroi and Stern, 1987; Rao and Willey, 1980; Venkateswarlu and Subramanian, 1990). Although much information is available on the production efficiency and monetary advantage of intercropping, very little is known about the nitrogen (N) economy and root behavior. The study was carried out to examine how the nitrogen balance sheet and root development of pigeonpea could be altered by companion crops.
