Abstract: 

Intercropping of pearl millet and common vetch was studied at Research Station of Faculty of Agriculture, University of Tabriz in 1999. The experimental design was randomized complete block with 3 replications. The treatments consisted of constant density of pearl millet with 15 kg/ha and three density of common vetch with 50, 70, 90 kg/ha and their combinations with the total of seven treatments. Intercropping system was additine. On the basis of standard LER, intercropping of pearl millet var. Nutrifeed with the third level of common vetch (90 kg/ha) was better than other the combinations. Its LER was 1.56. In some intercropping treatments, pearl millet yield in the second harvest was more than the first one. It seems that pearl millet exploited nitrogen remained prom vetch and decreased its interplant competition. Pure stand of common vetch was worthy of recommendation because of shorter growth period, optimum yield, better forage quality and improved soil fertility.
