- Enhancing agricultural production is important as an effort to support food security. The main commodities need to be improved are crops, namely maize and soybeans which become an important element in agricultural system. A low production of crop and lack of product availability need to be improved through alternative ways and new technology. One of them is the application of intercropping on agroforestry systems, where the cultivation pattern is intended to increase species diversity in non-conventional ecosystems and site-specific land-based uses. The experiment was conducted by Strip-Plot design with two factors, namely plant spacing and land zone. The data was processed using three analyses, ANOVA test followed by Duncan Multiple Range Test (DMRT) with 5% confidence level, and Optimization test as the determinant of optimum yield. The results showed that the application of intercropping in agroforestry system can be recommended at a plant spacing of 70 x 20 cm, both in land zone 1 and land zone 2 based on the aspect of Land Equivalent Ratio and Area Time Equivalent Ratio.
