ABSTRACT
An experiment on Ameliorative effect of NP fertilization (0-0, 60-60, 120-60, 180-60, 60-120, 120-120 and 180-120 kg/ha) on ratoon sugarcane under intercrops" was conducted during 1999 at NWFP Agricultural University, Peshawar. Number of shoots per stump of sugarcane was significantly increased by the increasing rate of nitrogen. Similarly, number of water shoots per stump of sugarcane was decreased by the increasing rate of nitrogen. In impact of various intercrops sunflower and soybean reduced shoots per stump of sugarcane up to 34 and 25% respectively. Maximum number of water shoots per stump of sugarcane was recorded in sunflower intercrop followed by soybean intercrop. Grain yield (kg/ha) of sunflower increased with increasing rate of nitrogen, while grain yield (kg/ha) of soybean increased with increasing rate of phosphorus.
