Abstract:

For efficient yield of any crop proper crop Irrigation is an important factor. Rainfall and irrigation are the two main sources of water in agriculture Current scenario of climate results in destructing rainfall pattern leading to different water stress. In some part of U.P, especially eastern U.P. will face in temperature (3 to 5ºc up to 2050) as per SAPCC, due to increase in rate of transpiration that will rise demand. To cope up with coming situation the experiment was conducted at Central Agricultural field, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, U.P. on wheat variety (HD-2967). Hydrogel and Chitosan were taken under different concentration to evaluate the Efficacy of Pusa Hydrogel on Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Growth and Yield under Different Levels of Irrigation and Chitosan. Retaining the water in soil and by reducing the loss of water through stomata is the aspect to be considered to deal with such arriving future. Superabsorbent polymer can absorb large quantities of water and retain in soil and Antitranspirant may reduce the loss of water via transpiration. Hydrogel (75%) and Chitosan (100%, 75% and 50%) with twenty-five treatments and three replications along with control were laid out in randomized block design Result on crop growth and yield under water deficit condition was observed Treatment T1 (100% HG and 100% CHT) showed best results, however T2 was statistically at par with T1, whereas comparing with control T0 (100% IR 70 Lit +NO SAP +NO AT.
