ABSTRACT
Field experiments were conducted during summer seasons 2007 and 2008 at College Farm, Navsari Campus on clayey in texture soils with different cereal legume fodders under sole and intercropping systems for getting higher fodder yield and returns. Green and dry fodder yields of sorghum/maize, cropping systems either sole sorghum or sorghum + cowpea in the ratio of 2:1 were equally good and significantly superior to rest of the systems. The intercropping of sorghum with cowpea in a row ratio of 2:1 recorded maximum land-equivalent ratio (1.51), gross (Rs 60744/- ha-1) and net (Rs 50031/- ha-1) realization along with higher benefit: cost ratio (5.67).
