dc.description.abstract A field experiment was carried out for one season (2003-2004) in the Experimental Farm of the Faculty of Agriculture at Shambat to study the effect of intercropping on the growth and yield of roselle under irrigation. The Experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design with four replicates. Treatments were sole roselle (R), sole pigeonpea (P), sole cowpea (C) and three planting patterns of roselle intercropped with each of the two legumes: alternate holes (RP1, RC1), the same hole (RP2, RC2) and alternate rows (RP3, RC3) respectively. The results showed that intercropping tended to reduce vegetative growth of roselle some times significantly. Moreover intercropping roselle with pigeonpea resulted in significant reduction in yield and yield components of roselle, particularly with same hole (RP2) treatment. On the other hand intercropping roselle with cowpea significantly increased yield and yield components of roselle especially with alternate holes and alternate rows treatments. Hay yield of roselle showed significant reduction with both legume combinations. Intercropped pigeonpea showed insignificant reduction in all yield components, except hay yield which showed significant reduction especially with the same hole (RP2) treatment. Intercropped cowpea exhibited insignificant reduction in all yield components, except the number of pods per plant and hay yield which showed significant reduction particularly with the same hole (RC2) treatment. Calyx protein content of roselle was significantly increased by intercropping with pigeonpea, whereas intercropping with cowpea caused significant decrease. Anthocynin and citric acid content of intercropped roselle showed insignificant increase, whereas oxalic acid content showed significant increase with intercropping. The land equivalent ratio (LER) for the different intercropping systems was found to be more than one. Roselle/ legumes intercropping showed highest LER with cowpea than with pigeonpea treatments. Generally alternate rows treatments were the most productive system. en_US
