Abstract: A field trial was conducted to study the effect of intercropping of lavender with different leguminous crops (viz., Mash, Rajmash and Peas) in the row ratio of 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3. The study revealed that Lavender + Mash in the row ratio of 1:2 gives the highest oil yield of 30.92 L/ha whereas, sole lavender yielded 19.91 L/ha of oil. Economywise also Lavender + Mash (1:2) recorded the highest net returns of Rs.55,436/ha whereas sole lavender gave Rs. - 4108/ha during the first year. Thus it was concluded that farmer can be saved from crop losses as lavender is having a gestation period of 1.5 years and does not yield in the first year.
