Abstract

The research is geared to co-relate the enhanced agricultural productivity with efficient farm Intercropping. In order to test the validity of study objectives, a workable methodology was designed. In this regard, a sample of 127 farmers was selected. Talukas Matiari, Hyderabad and Tando Allahyar in district Hyderabad were selected as the study area. Study reveals that demographic trends in the study area are same as elsewhere in Sindh. For example more than 55% respondents replied that they were living in joint family structure. Out of total 127 respondents, 40 adopted intercropping; study reveals significantly higher crop yield and crop incomes of those famers who adapted intercropping.
