Abstract
Intercropping is commonly used in the Hetao irrigation district, upper Yellow River basin, where the main crops are wheat, maize and sunflower. For a better use of land, water, radiation energy, and nutrients, spring wheat is traditionally intercropped with maize (W–M) and, more recently, with sunflower (W–S). Considering the need to reduce diversions of water for irrigation in Hetao, this study aims to assess crop water use of W–M and W–S intercropping systems in comparison to the same crops in monocropping. The dual crop coefficient approach was adopted with the SIMDualKc model, which allows partitioning crop evapotranspiration into crop transpiration and soil evaporation. A new model approach was tested to compute a combined basal crop coefficient for the intercropping, Kcb inter, which uses the daily values of the Kcb of the component crops together with the respective heights and fractions of ground covered by the crops. SIMDualKc was first calibrated and validated for wheat, maize and sunflower as single crops using field data of 2010–2012 and was later used with the new developed approach, which was validated with W–M and W–S field data of 2010–2011. The Kcb values calibrated for wheat, maize and sunflower compared well with literature and goodness of fit indicators have shown high accuracy of simulations used for calibration and validation. Results evidenced the importance of groundwater contribution in Hetao, and that soil evaporation is there low under surface irrigation. Moreover, it was found that actual evapotranspiration, crop transpiration, irrigation water use and groundwater contribution of intercropping systems were larger than those of the component sole crops, which led to significantly higher yields of intercropping relative to those of single crops.

Abstract This study was conducted during three seasons (2012–2014) in an experimental hop yard at Mabegondo, Galicia, NW Spain. The research aimed at calibrating and validating the soil water balance model SIMDualKc for Humulus lupulus L. cv. ‘Nugget’. The model computes the soil water balance using the dual K c approach, thus partitioning crop evapotranspiration (ET c ) into crop transpiration, ground cover transpiration and soil evaporation. Calibration and validation were performed using TDR ...

Two contrasting rainfall barley seasons, dry (2012) and wet (2013), were used to parameterize and assess the performance of the SIMDualKc and AquaCrop models. Field data were obtained from malt barley cropped in a farmer’s field in Ribatejo, Portugal. SIMDualKc applies the dual crop coefficient approach for computing and partitioning crop evapotranspiration (ET), while AquaCrop uses an empirical approach to estimate potential crop transpiration (Tc) and soil evaporation (Es) depending upon the c...

Intercropping, drip irrigation, and the use of plastic mulch are important management practices, which can, when utilized simultaneously, increase crop production and save irrigation water. Investigating soil water dynamics in the root zone of the intercropping field under such conditions is essential in order to understand the combined effects of these practices and to promote their wider use. However, not much work has been done to investigate soil water dynamics in the root zone of drip-irrig...

Background Overyielding (i.e., mixtures of crops yielding higher than expected when compared with monocultures) and increased nutrient acquisition have been found in many intercropping systems. However, there are very few published studies on long-term changes in soil chemical and biological properties in intercropping systems compared to sole cropping.

Abstract The ability to simulate soil and crop processes in many bi-specific systems (vineyards, orchards, silvo-arable agroforestry, strip-intercropping of arable crops…) is one of the major challenge for crop modelling in order to contribute to the design of agro-ecological cropping systems. A typical question is how soil, climate and management would influence the soil water deficit experienced by a plant grown alone or intercropped with a cover crop, with another crop or a tree, in order to ...

Intercropping is the system of simultaneously growing two or more crops on the same land area with a definite row arrangement. However, it is very much important to ensure that component crops do not compete with each other for space, moisture, nutrients, and solar radiation. Cereal+legume intercropping provides a greater scope for minimizing the adverse impact of moisture and nutrient stress in addition to improving system productivity and soil health. Researchers reported significant enhanceme...
