Abstract
A study was conducted in two forest reserves in Northern and Southern Kordofan States to (i) evaluate the effect of Acacia senegal on the growth and yield of groundnut, sesame and millet, (ii) determine the suitability of these crops under alley cropping, and (iii) indicate the feasibility of agroforestry as a farming practice. Yield of the three crops was more with alley cropping than with sole cropping in the two sites, and groundnut proved to be most compatible with Acacia senegal followed by sesame and millet.
