Abstract:

A field experiment entitled Study the effect of irrigation frequencies and mulching on growth and yield parameters of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) was conducted during rabi season from 14th November, 2019 to 22th March, 2020 at technology park of CTAE, Udaipur (Rajasthan). The experiment consists of eight treatments combination of irrigation based on field capability at two irrigation frequencies of I1-single irrigation (at pre sowing + flowering stage) and I2-double irrigation (at pre sowing + flowering stage + pod filling stage) irrigation frequencies along with; M0-no mulch (NM), M1-Black poly mulch (BPM), M2-Non-woven mulch (NWM) and M3-Bio degradable mulch were laid out with three replications in factorial randomized block design (FRBD). Mulching and irrigation frequencies significantly influenced the growth and yield attributes at harvest maximum plant height (73.27 cm), number of primary branches per plant (30.20), number of pod/plant (138.13), seed weight/pod (0.232 gm), and yield/hectare (26.49 q) higher in treatment combination of M3-BDM and I1-single irrigation i.e. treatment (T7).
