  • One needs to plant medium maturing/full season maize with early/medium cowpea.
    Plant cowpea 10 days after maize for best yield and grain quality.
    Planting Method:
    Maize -1m between row, 50cm within row, 2 plants/hill
    Cowpea - 40cm-20cm- 40cm between rows and 20cm within rows -2 plants/hill.
    Apply fertilizer to maize.
    Spray cowpea against pests as recommended
    Control weeds manually.
