Abstract:

The precision farming including plasticulture applications has proven its worth in realizing more output per unit of inputs and resources bestowed on to land. As an alternative to raise production and productivity especially to compete global trade and meet out own requirements. Cabbage is grown extensively in summers in Ladakh region and is stored for winters. Due to lack of scientific know how, improved varieties and modern precision farming techniques, crop yield and quality is comparatively low. Therefore, cabbage cultivation tried with precision farming practices including crop geometry, mulching and micro-irrigation methods to get early and higher yield with good quality heads at Precision Farming Development Centre, Leh. Black plastic mulching along with drip irrigation showed considerable improvement in yield as well good quality heads. Drip irrigation was found to be best method of irrigation during summer cabbage production. Mulching also reduced the labour cost in water application and weeding.
