Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of the year 2010 at Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat to study the influence of date of sowing and irrigation scheduling on productivity of summer moth bean. The results indicated that treatment D2 sowing at (30th January) recorded the highest plant height (10.00 cm, 19.50 cm and 27.05 cm at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest, respectively. While the lowest plant height (6.25 cm, 16.33 and 21.13 cm at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest, respectively) was observed under 20th January sowing (D1). Date of sowing had significant effect on seed yield of moth bean. Significantly the highest seed (460 kg/ha) was recorded under treatment D2 (sowing at 30th January). Whereas, significantly lower seed (368 kg/ha) was under treatment D1 (sowing at 20th January). Treatment D2 (sowing at 30th January) increase seed yield to the tune of 18.26%, 19.78% and 20% over the treatments D3 (sowing at 9th February), D4 (sowing at 19th February) and D1 (sowing at 20th January), respectively. Among the different levels of irrigation scheduling, application of irrigation at 0.7 IW:CPE ratio (I2) recorded significantly higher average plant height (11.37, 19.76, 27.95 cm) at 30 and 60 DAS and at harvest, average length of pod (3.78 cm), significantly the lowest seed (319 kg/ha) was observed under treatment I0 (control, irrigation at critical growth stages). Result revealed that treatment combination of (D2I2), 30th January date of sowing of moth bean with irrigation scheduling based on IW:CPE ratio 0.7 (8+1 irrigation) recorded significantly the highest seed yield (651 kg/ha). For securing higher seed yield and net realization from summer moth bean it is advisable that crop should be sown at 30th January with nine irrigations, each of 50 mm depth scheduled at an IW:CPE ratio of 0.7.
