Preface flower to another in search of nectar without losing enthusiasm. Similarly, one should never lose enthusiasm as it is the only force, which drives people to perform at their best and Agriculture has been and will continue to be the life line of the Indian upon the agriculture sector. India supports 16 of the world human and ces, 2.4 global area and 0.5 grazing land. The per capita availability of resources in about 4 to 6 times less as compared to the world average. There is every possibility of future decrease in per capita availability of resources due to increasing demographic pressure causing land diversion for nonagriculture use. Orissa, like India is also suffering from bulging population of human beings as well as live stock. To feed the live stock, our state has a requirement of 43.88metric tone of green and 42.48 metric tons of dry fodder, respectively. The available green and dry fodder has been estimated to be approximately 16.29 metric tons and 62.32 metric tons, respectively. There is a deficit of 61.48 and surplus of 46.70 of green and dry fodder, respectively. Hence, to meet the demand of both the human and live stock population the food-fodder cropping system is the need of the present day. This will ensure higher production, productively and better nutritional qualities of both food and fodder as compared to the present traditional system of mono-cropping. Cowpea Vigna unguiculata L Watp is an important fodder legume grown during kharif, pre-rabi and summer seasons. It is grown mainly for fodder either as a pure crop or intercropped with seasonal fodder viz. maize, sorghum, pearl millet or perennial fodder i.e., napier-bajra-hybrid for enriching their nutritive value, because of its higher protein content. Besides, it also fixes atmospheric nitrogenin soil and reduces the nitrogen need of the succeeding crop. In recent days it is also grown as a pre-kharif fodder crop to supply green fodder during scarcity. Optimum plant population is required for achieving the potential yield. Too close a spacing will have the overcrowding, and wider spacing reduces the plant population. The optimum
