Abstract:

The field trials were conducted during the two consecutive kharif seasons 2016-17 and 2017-18 with three mulching and three irrigation levels viz. 60%, 80%, 100% CPE (cumulative pan evaporation) to determine the growth and yield attributes of  pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L.) in Vindhyan plateau of Madhya Pradesh. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design with three replications. Mulching and irrigation levels significantly affected (P<0.05) the growth and yield attributes of pigeonpea. M2 (17.51 q/ha) registered 47.98% higher seed yield than without mulch (11.83 q/ha). Irrigation treatments also affect the yield.  I2 (16.01 q/ha) registered 13.77% higher seed yield than I1 (14.07 q/ha). Highest water use efficiency (q/ha-cm) registered with black plastic mulch (1.02) which is at par in wheat straw mulch (0.96) and lowest value recorded in without mulch (0.69). Wheat straw mulch recorded maximum B: C ratio of 1.52 which is at par with black plastic mulch (1.48). Lowest B: C ratio (1.33) recorded under without mulch treatment. Among irrigation treatments, lowest value (1.26) of it recorded with 0.6IW/CPE whereas highest B: C (1.56) registered with 0.8IW/CPE which is at par with 1.0IW/CPE (1.52).
