Intercrops cotton and castor were grown between sesame rows in different ratios. All intercropping systems of sesame + cotton had higher total productivity in terms of sesame equivalent yield, net return, return repee−1 invested and income equivalent ratio (IER) than all the sole crops and sesame + castor intercropping systems. However, maximum advantage was obtained from sowing of 3 rows of sesame and 1 row of cotton.
