A field experiment was performed at farmerʾs field. The objective of the study was to evaluate forage yield and quality of pearl millet intercropped with cluster bean. Experiment consisted of randomized complete block design with three replications. Cluster bean was planted in between the rows of pearl millet. Results showed that maximum leaf area per plant was observed for pearl millet sown in 30 cm apart rows. Minimum leaf area per plant, dry matter and fresh weight was observed for pear millet in drill sown of pearl millet in 30 cm apart rows and cluster bean in between the pearl millet. Maximum crude protein and crude fiber was observed for pearl millet and cluster bean in cluster bean sown alone by broadcast method. Maximum ash contents were observed for pearl millet and cluster beans sowing of pearl millet in drill sown of pearl millet in 30 cm apart rows and cluster bean in between pearl millet rows. So the pearl millet planted 30 cm apart and intercropped with cluster bean produced maximum yield and quality of forage than sole crop.
