A field experiment was conducted to find out the suitable combination of relay intercropping of different gourds with brinjal for higher productivity and economic return at the Regional Agricultural Research Station, Jamalpur during rabi and kharif 2017-2018 and 2018-2019. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications and seven treatments. The treatments were T1= Sole brinjal, T2= Brinjal + relay sweet gourd, T3= Brinjal + relay ridge gourd, T4= Brinjal + relay bitter gourd, T5= Brinjal+ relay sponge gourd, T6= Brinjal + relay snake gourd, T7= Brinjal + relay ash gourd. Highest brinjal yield was observed in relaying snake gourd and sweet gourd combination (Y1 and Y2) which was statistically similar to sole brinjal and brinjal + relay ash gourd combination.
