The present investigation was undertaken to study the effect of intercrops on yield and monetary returns of cabbage in rabi seasons of 1995–96, 1996–97 and 1997–98. The pooled data of three years revealed that the combined yield of cabbage + palak was found to be significantly higher than the remaining crop combinations. The land equivalent ratio was highest in cabbage + methi than the remaining combinations. The highest monetary returns of Rs. 101760.43 was recorded by cabbage + palak while the same combination recorded the highest net profit.
