Annex 11: Initial observation: Intercropping Maize and Orange-fleshed sweetpotato at Bvumbwe Research Station in the 2010/2011 rainy season

In the 2010/2011 rainy season, an initial demo trial of Intercropping maize and sweetpotato was conducted at Bvumbwe Research Station. Our objective was to find out the best combination between maize and sweetpotato which were intercropped. In this demo trial, we could not include the sole cropping of maize and sweetpotato due to having a technical problem. Thus, the efficiency of intercropping between maize and sweetpotato cannot be calculated. However, we had some good results to be reported. We also calculated the estimate gross margin analysis that we included in this report.
