A field experiment was conducted during the kharif season 2005 to study the performance of maize (Dekalb Super 900 M) under intercropping with cowpea (Gomati-VU-89), frenchbean (Contender) and coriander (DWD-3) in 1:1, 1:2 and 1:5 row proportions. Vegetables did not influence yield and yield parameters of maize significantly in 1:1 and 1:2 row proportions. Land equivalent ratio in maize + frenchbean (1:2 row proportion) and area time equivalent ratio in maize + cowpea (1:2 row proportion) were significantly higher over 1:5 row proportion and sole crop systems. Maize + frenchbean at 1:2 row proportion resulted in maximum maize equivalent yield (9894 kg ha-1) and net returns (Rs.38773-1).
