In this paper, we investigated the process and extent of studying the convergence of the steady-state solutions of a mathematical model of two interacting legumes (cowpea and groundnut) growing within the same uncontaminated environment. The convergence process was conducted using some standard numerical procedures. The result obtained shows that after repeated simulations, the unstable steadystate solution converged. Using our technique we found that the convergence of the steady-state solution (3.2599, 0) is reached when the value of the final time is 750.
