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...
