Productivity of Maize-Legume Intercropping under No-till in central Mozambique: Challenges and Opportunities
cropping less feasible. Legume intercrops are an alternative and feasible soil surface cover strategy that smallholder farmers can readily utilize. Legume intercrops are important in farming systems because they can ensure food security, increase income, reduce soil erosion, suppress weeds and fix N resulting in increased efficiency of land use through more complete utilization of solar radiation, water and nutrients. This paper seeks to evaluate the productivity of maize-grain legume intercropping as an alternative to sole cropping especially in mixed crop-livestock systems where harvest/cereal crop residues are fed to livestock and thus are not available for mulch.
