In order to evaluate intercropping of maize (Zea mays L.) and faba bean (Vicia faba L.), a field experiment was conducted as factorial on the bases of randomized complete block design with three replications. Treatments were intercropped combinations of maize densities (6, 7 and 8 plant/ m 2) and faba bean densities (30, 40 and 50 plant/ m 2) and 6 sole-cropped treatments. Two species intercropped as additive series. Results revealed that the effects of maize density were significant on ear
