WHAT IS INTERCROPPING?

Intercropping is a multiple cropping practice involving growing two or more crops in proximity. The most common goal of intercropping is to produce a greater yield on a given piece of land by making use of resources or ecological processes that would otherwise not be utilized by a single crop.

Why Intercrop?

  • Diversity and stability of fields

  • A complimentary sharing of plant resources

  • Reduction in chemical/fertilizer application

  • Reduction of weed pressure

  • Reduction of susceptibility to insects and disease
