In the last lesson, you learned that multiple cropping systems intensify production in time and/or space. More specifically, sequential cropping amplifies crop production in time, whereas intercropping does so in both time and space. This lesson will focus on intercropping systems.
- Describe and compare intercropping patterns.
- Evaluate yield responses of intercropping systems.
- Analyze the ecology of multiple cropping patterns.
- Compare the productivity of cropping systems.
