A field experiment was conducted during the 2002 summer season in Rabbah, Amman, Jordan, to study the effect of okra (cv. C-Spineless)/pea (cv. Red Thiram) intercropping on air and soil temperatures, light interception, soil moisture storage, evapotranspiration, water use efficiency and yield of okra and pea. The intercropping arrangements were (1:1, 1:2, 2:1 and 2:2). The best intercropping row arrangement that gave higher yield for pea and okra was 1:2 and 2:1. A major cause of yield advantage in pea/okra intercropping was the better use of growth resources, namely light, temperature and water.
