Abstract:

Geotextiles a natural product at eco-friendly and biodegradable in nature, act as useful ameliorative to climate the soil related constrains of crop production. Biodeterioration of cellulose fiber results from the reduction at die polymerization leading to loss textile strength. It also helps to protect the most vital natural resources of soil and water from various degradation processes by erosion of soil and runoff water. It plays a vital role in increasing moisture holding capacity in soil, improving water uptake and drainage capacity. Application of suitable ameliorative thus necessitates for improving various soil conditions towards increasing the crop productivity. The experiment was conducted with five treatments combinations viz. T1 -non woven jute geotextile, T2 - non woven dry grasses geotextile, T3 - non woven coco coir geotextile ,T4 - non woven banana leaf fibre geotextile and T5 - farmers practices (i.e. control). All geotextile materials @ 10 ton /ha were spread on the soil after final land preparation and before seedling or planting of vegetables. Application of different Geotextile treatments improves the physical and chemical environments in soil thus favouring better soil conditions and nutrient availabilities towards better growth and yield of vegetables.
