Maize and Pigeonpea Intercropping

The project tested different spatial maize/pigeon peas arrangements in the field with already recommended varieties that are differentiated by maturity periods (which affect canopy interactions). The maize varieties included PAN 691, a long maturing maize variety, Mkombozi, an early to medium maturity high yielding maize variety, and SC 627, an early maturing variety. These were intercropped with pigeon peas variety Mali from ICRISAT, a long maturing and high yielding variety that was considered new in the study sites.
