The Held experiments were carried out at Instructional Farm. AIC’RP on Dry land Agriculture, Marathwada Agricultural University. Parbhani during the rainy season o f 2001-2005 on eight different cropping systems consisting o f important food, pulse and oilseed crops o f Marathwada region under varied weather conditions. The results revealed that intercropping o f sorghum (CSH-9) t pigeonpea. pear m illet pigeonpea and castor + soybean sown in 26 meteorological w e eM M W ) produced the highest grain yield and average productivity o f the system during all the years o f experimentation as compared to rest o f the cropping systems. Similarly, castor soybean produced the highest sorghum grain equivalent which was at par with soybean + pigeonpea. Arhorhtm cotton + soybean and cotton (N I111-44) + soybean. The sowing o f all the crops and cropping systems on 26 MW recorded significantly highest sustainable yield index (0.^2) as compared to sowing o f all cropping systems on delayed sowing dates.
