 en Tropical Intercropping Systems: What is their Future?
Francis, C.A & Adipala, E


This paper examines the relevance of a temperate region model in intercropping in the tropics and outlines the success of tropical intercropping systems in maintaining biodiversity and controlling pest populations. It then discusses the need for research to develop crop varieties for intercropping systems which take into consideration planting and harvesting technologies.
