Abstract The project tested different spatial maize/pigeonpea arrangements in the field with already recommended varieties that are differentiated by maturity periods (which affect canopy interactions). The maize varieties included PAN 691, a long maturing maize variety, Mkombozi, an early to medium maturity high yielding maize variety, and SC 627, an early maturing variety. These were intercropped with pigeonpea variety Mali from ICRISAT, a long maturing and high yielding variety that was considered new in the study sites.
