Abstract


The purpose of this study was to find out how the best use of sunlight efficiency between intercropping and salome cropping systems is to compare the best production of both intercropping and salome cropping systems. The experiment was conducted at the Experimental Garden of Agriculture Faculty, Gadjah Mada University, Banguntapan, Bantul, Yogyakarta, starting on May 2015. The experiment was conducted on a plot of land measuring 4 x 7 m2. This experiment used a Randomized Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) consisting of one treatment factor namely planting system, with 2 treatment levels: intercropping System of Soybean-Maize (S1) and Salome Cropping System (S2). Salome cropping pattern gives better yield of maizecobs than 1: 2 intercropping. Salome cropping pattern decreases the number and weight of freshly ground soybean pods compared to 1: 2 intercropping system.
