Plant morphotype or architecture exerts an important influence on the performance and productivity of a maize/legume intercrop. The general objective of this study was to evaluate the adaptability of released maize morphotypes when intercropped with groundnut. Two experiments were designed with the following specific objectives: Experiment 1. To determine the performance of three maize morphotypes intercropped with a local cultivar of groundnut at four ecological sites of the north west province of Cameroon. Experiment 2(a). To determine the effects of relative planting dates on grain yields on the components of a maize and groundnut intercrop. (b). To determine the effect of different shading intensities on the grain yield of groundnut.
