Abstract

This paper deals with three experiments that were carried out on the effect of moisture regime. The three crops involved were groundnut, millet, and sorghum. The results show that intercropping may give relative advantages under conditions of moisture stress but little or none under no-stress conditions. It is also evident that the effects of moisture stress are very complex and that they vary with crop combination and row arrangement within a combination.
