Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted 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) affected yield attributes and yield of green gram over no mulch. Live mulch produced higher number of branches plant-1 and number of pod plant-1 which was remain statistically at par with mustard straw mulch and dust mulch. Live mulch again remain statistically at par with mustard straw mulch produced higher seed yield (1272 kg ha-1), straw yield (2500 kg ha-1) and biological yield (3772 kg ha-1) of green gram as compared no mulch and dust mulch. Results indicated that different varieties were also affected significant variance on yield attributes and yield of green gram. Variety SML 668 produced higher significantly higher number of branches plant-1, number of pod plant-1, seed yield (1321.5 kg/ ha), biological yield (3817.08 kg/ha ) and straw yield (2496.2 kg/ha ) as compared to HUM 16, IPM-02-03 and GM 4. Howerever, variety HUM 16 recorded highest test weight and it was remain statistically at par with SML 668 as compared to GM 4 and IPM 02-03.
