The experience of several Saskatchewan farmers with intercropping is discussed. Some examples are durum wheat and flax, spring wheat and fall rye, rye and oats, rye and flax, peas and oats, mustard and peas, clover and oats. With wheat and rye, seeded together in the spring, the wheat is harvested the first year and the rye the next year. The rye discourages broadleaf weeds.
