Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during summer 2014 on sesamum, Sesamum indicum L. with an objective to study the mulches on growth, yield and quality of summer sesamum in relation to weather parameters. The results of the study indicated that all the treatments were significantly influenced. Amongst the treatments, sowing of sesamum on the application of sugarcane trash mulch @ 5 t ha-1 was found significantly superior in plant height (101.47 cm), number of functional leaves plant-1 (92.68), leaf area plant-1 (8.83dm2), plant spread plant-1 (43.19 cm), number of branches plant-1 (6.78), number of capsules plant-1 (58.81), dry matter plant-1 (20.35 g), seed weight plant-1 (4.02 g) and grain yield (886.76 kg ha-1), gross monetary returns (70939 Rs.ha-1), net monetary returns (33779 Rs.ha-1). The study of Correlation coefficient between weather parameters and plant growth contributing characters of summer sesamum are positively significant in all mulches.
