Mixed Croppoing :
The process of mixing seeds of two or more different crops and then sowing then in the same field is called mixed cropping.
Example of mixed cropping -
(a) Wheat + mustard
(b) Maize + urad
(c) Arhar + mung
(d) Ground nut + sunflower
Advantages of Mixed Cropping :
There is lesser risk of total crop failure because if one crop fails, then the other crop helps the farmers to overcome his loss.
Farmers get a variety of products for their family by growing crops under the mixed cropping system, e.g. cereals, pulses, fodder and vegetables may be grown simultaneously.
