Abstract:

To protect the environment, expand the earth’s natural resource base and for maintaining the soil fertility sustainable agriculture plays an important role where, mulching is one of the major factor for sustainable agriculture technology. So, to study the best mulching practice in soybean and their feasibility a field experiment was carried out during the kharif season of 2019 at experimental field of College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal. The experiment comprised of seven different treatments (mulches) which are laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. These mulching practices significantly influenced the growth and yield of soybean where, higher values of plant height (96.77 cm), number of branches per plant (23.60), dry matter accumulation per plant (44.01g), number of pods per plant (84.2), test weight (11.9 g), grain yield (2554.7 kg/ha), straw yield (3260.7 kg/ha), biological yield (5798.7 kg/ha) and harvest index (44.1%) were observed in polythene mulching followed by mulching with rice straw @ 5 t ha-1. While control recorded the lowest in all aspects.
