how does intercropping give better returns to the farmers than the normal method of cultivation ?
Asked by | 4th Sep, 2012, 12:29: PM
In intercropping, farmers grow two or more crops together on the same area of land at the same time.
Intercropping gives better returns to farmers since it:
- offers a better utilization of natural and labor resources
- provides safeguards against failure of single crop
- gives greater yield and return per unit area
- and minimizes the spread of pests and diseases.
If a crop gets spoiled, then the farmer will atleast be left with the remaining types.
