Abstract:

A field experiment was counducted at Agronomy Farm, College of Agriculture, Swami Keshwanand Rajasthan Agricultural University, Bikaner during kharif season 2017. “Effect of Different Mulches on Green Gram (Vigna radiata L.) Varieties in North Western Rajasthan” The experiment comprising of four mulching (no mulch, dust mulch, live mulch and mustard straw mulch) and four varieties (HUM 16, IPM-02-03, SML 668 and GM 4) comprising a total of 16 treatment combinations in RBD (Factorial Randomised Blok Design ) with three replications. Results showed that different mulches (dust mulch, live mulch and mustard straw mulch) significantly affected nitrogen and phosphorus uptake over no mulch. Live mulch, mustard straw mulch and dust mulching remain statistically at par with each other and live mulch recorded significantly higher nitrogen uptake by seed (46.6 kg/ha).However mustard straw mulch remain statistically at par with live mulch and dust mulch recorded significantly higher nitrogen content in straw (57.1 kg/ha) and total nitrogen uptake by crop (103.7 kg/ha), phosphorus content in seed (5.0 kg/ha) and total phosphorus uptake (10.4 kg/ha) by crop. Nitrogen and phosphorus uptake in green gram crop were significantly affected by varieties of green gram. Variety SML 668 recorded significantly higher amount of total nitrogen uptake (105.4 kg/ha). However variety SML 668 remain statistically at par with variety HUM 16 and IPM 02-03 recorded higher phosphorus content in seed (5.1 kg/ha) and total phosphorus uptake by crop (10.5 kg/ha) as compared to GM 4.
