The experiment was carried out during two consecutive years in monsoon period at village Kanharpura, district Jalaun, Bundelkhand of Uttar Pradesh. The operational area of Model Watershed, Rendhar, Jalaun Bundelkhand was selected for this study. The main objective was to protect the chilli, crop from natural hazards. The ravines affected land of experimental area was reclaimed with different soil and water engineering measures. The experimental soil was Parwa, having low nutrients status. In chilli + ramdana intercropping, chilli, roots washed with water and dipped the seedling in plant originated systemic insecticide registered higher green fruits yield by 95.10 q/ha closely followed by chilli + ramdana intercropping where topping of chilli seedling was done yielded green fruits to 93.00 q/ha. The normal intercropping of chilli + ramdana without any additional activity gave lowest yield of green fruits by 91.30 q/ha. Not much variation was found in the yield of intercropped ramdana. The incidence of white flies, thrips and aphids (Myzus sp.) was found absent in chilli crop. The leaf curl disease (mosaic) was also found nil throughout the crop period of chill.
