A field experiment was conducted in order to study the cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) yield response to plastic mulch, irrigation methods and levels. The effect of three irrigation levels viz.; 1.0 ETc (I1), 0.8 ETc (I2) and 0.6 ETc (I3) in combination with four cultivation practices; silver black plastic mulch (M1), no mulch (M2), flat bed with drip irrigation (M3) and border irrigation (M4) were studied on crop growth and yield response. The experiment was laid out in large plot technique taking twelve treatment combinations replicated thrice. The treatment combination of 0.8 ETc with silver black plastic mulch resulted in maximum crop yield (22543.33 kg/ha) and water use efficiency (78.62 kg/ha-mm). Overall it could be concluded that 0.8 ETc irrigation levels along with silver black plastic mulch was found most economical and obtained highest crop yield of summer cucumber with best water use efficiency.
