I tried the best intercropping pattern. Sowed in 18 acres of land.

Red gram – Kandulu (180 days – crop duration)
Black gram – Minumulu (85 days – crop duration)

Green gram – Pesara (55 days – crop duration)

finger millet – Raagulu(110 days – crop duration)

foxtail millet – Korra(90 days – crop duration)

Sorghum 2 types – Jonna (110 days – crop duration)

Pearl millet – Sajja(80 days – crop duration)

Sesame (Black and White) - Tella nuvvulu/Nalla Nuvvulu(90 days – crop duration)

Black-eyed pea/Cow Pea - Alasandalu/Bobbarlu (90 days – crop duration)



I applied only Jeevamrutham.. with this intercropping pattern…there is no space for weeding.I successfully implemented it. Harvesting of the crop starts from 55th day (green gram) up to 180 days ( red gram )
