Intercropping pea and barley enhances the feed quality of barley

Intercropping barley with pea increased the nutritive value of the barley through increasing protein concentration and slightly improving in vitro digestibility. Intercropping cereals with grain legumes usually had no, or slightly positive effects, on mean grain weight and grain specific weight (kg/hl), although negative effects were seen in Italy. Intercropping barley with pea had only minor or inconsistent effects on the quality of a following wheat crop.
