Hordeum vulgare/Pisum sativum Intercropping

Overview

Two half-acre plots were interplanted with Baroness barley (Hordeum vulgare) and Nette pea (Pisum sativum) mixes. One plot, pictured on the left, was seeded at 100 lbs of peas/acre - 75 lbs of barley/acre, while the other, pictured on the right, was planted at 40 lbs of peas/acre - 120 lbs/ of barley/acre. Both pea populations were innoculated with N-DURE innoculant (Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viciae) at 5 oz/100 lb. The two populations were mechanically cultivated by tine harrow and compared against a 200 lb/acre monocropping of Nette peas. ..
