Abstract:

Present study is based on three years research trials to evaluate the effect of Fertigation and Plastic Mulching on Banana crop. Field trials accomplished total five treatments, i’e T1 (80% RDF+0.8V volume of water through drip irrigation+ mulch), T2 (80% RDF+0.6V volume of water through drip irrigation+ mulch), T3 (80% RDF+0.8V volume of water through drip irrigation without mulch), T4 (80% RDF+0.6V volume of water through Drip irrigation without mulch) and control treatment T5 (100% RDF+flood irrigation) with four replications. The results  revealed that the reproductive parameters such as  average number of fingers per bunch, average weight per finger, average yield (kg/bunch) and average  yield (t/ha) was found in treatment T1 to the tune of 132.31, 219.95 g, 28.15 Kg and 94.87 t/ha followed by treatment T3 124.28, 211.79 g, 25.52 Kg and 85.88 t/ha. In control treatment T5 it was 103.75, 183.72 g, 18.05 Kg and 65.550 t/ ha, respectively. The benefit cost ratio was also estimated to be height in treatment T1 i’e 2.66 while in control treatment T5 it was 1.65.
