Studies on intercropping of legumes viz. Soybean, cowpea, frenchbean and urdbean with maize at varying levels of NPK to legume component revealed that intercropping systems were superior to sole crop. In intercropping systems, application of 50 per cent of the recommended dose of NPK fertilizers to legume component was statistically at par with 100 per cent fertilizers. On an average, available N content at harvest in intercropping system was higher by 30 kg N/ha maize equivalent yield by 15–20 q/ha and LER by 30–37 per cent as compared to that in sole stand. Paired row planting 30/60 cm of maize could not enhance yield as compared to uniform row 60 cm planting.
