TAILIEUCHUNG - Growth and yield of Ashwagandha [Withania somnifera (L.)] as influenced by different intercropping system in Kymore plateau of Madhya Pradesh

The experiment was conducted at the Research farm, Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwa Vidhyalaya, Jabalpur (MP) during Kharif 2009 and 2011 with a view to study “Effect of different intercropping system on growth and yield of ashwagandha [Withania somnifera (L.)] in Kymore Plateau of Madhya Pradesh”. Showed that the plant height did not differ between different treatments at early stage (30 DAS) but at maturity stage, it attained significantly taller plants when intercropped with red gram during both years. Ashwagandha at early (30 DAS) as well as maturity stage was almost unaffected by the maximum branches and in ashwagandha grown with green gram (3:1). LAI was not-significantly affected due to intercropping system with varied row ratio (3:1 and 4:1). Though, it attained maximum at 120 DAS. Plant dry weight was found at peak growth period of ashwagandha viz. 60 and 120 DAS was significantly higher in ashwagandha sole, Ashwagandha + red gram (3:1 and 4:1), Ahawagandha + niger (4:1). The significantly produced higher root yields (518 kg/ha) over all other intercropped stands producing tuber yields between 392 to 430 kg/ha. Amongst the intercropping systems, ashwagandha grown with the sesame (4:1) gave the highest root yield of 430 kg/ha. Ashwagandha equivalent yield was recorded significantly maximum under ashwagandha + red gram in 3:1 and 4:1 row proportion and kg/ha which exhibited statistically at par with sole Ashwagandha (609 kg/ha). | Growth and yield of Ashwagandha [Withania somnifera (L.)] as influenced by different intercropping system in Kymore plateau of Madhya Pradesh
