An experiment cunducted on a Vertisol field at ICRISAT compared the rc\rdunl efiect ot monocropped pigconpea, intcrcropped prgronpcii \orphun~( I row:2 rows) with 0 and 80 kg N/ ha, monocropped so~ghunl wrth O and 80 kg N/ha, and fallow treatments on a s~~bscquenmta vc crop. Monocropped pigconpea had a large resrdual etlect on rnalre, increasing the grain yield by 57% and total plant dry matter by 32"/0 over fallow. lntercropped pigeonpea had l~ttlc re\~dual cffect on maize. Eknefits from a prevlous crop ot monocropped plgeonpea were equivalent to about 40 kg b ha appllcd to thc ni,ll/r crop grown in land kept fallow during the previous rlilnj scason.
