A field experiment was conducted at TCA farm, Dholi, a campus of Rajendra Agricultural University, Pusa (samastipur) Bihar during winter season 2003-04 to evaluate the production potential and economic feasibility in maize based cropping system. The experiment consisted of 11 treatments was planted on 22.11.2003. The experiment was conducted in RBD design with 3 replications. Perusal of data of experiment conducted revealed that maize grown as sole secured highest plant height, LAI, Drymatter accumulation No. of grain/cob, test wt, grain yield, Harvest index. Data revealed that sole maize(T1 )secured highest all the parameter viz. plant height, LAI, Drymatter accumulation test wt, grain yield ,harvest index. Among intercrops T8-maize + 1 row radish, showed better growth, better expression plant height, LAI, Drymatter accumulation test wt, grain yield, harvest index than when intercropped with potato, rajmash, pea and fababean.
