Abstract:

The field experiment was carried out at Research farm, Department of Agronomy, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani during Kharif, 2018 with an object to find out the effect of various agronomic practices for rain water conservation on growth and yield of rainfed Bt. cotton. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design, replicated thrice with seven treatments. Treatments adopted were T1 - Opening furrow (Every row) 30 DAS, T2 - Opening furrow (Alternate row) 30 DAS, T3 - Straw mulching 30 DAS, T4 - Application of herbicide (Pyrithiobac sodium PE + POE), T5 - Application of Superabsorbent @ 5 kg ha-1, T6 - Intercropping (Cotton + soybean (1:2)), T7 - Control (No moisture conservation practices). seed cotton yield (kg ha-1) (2116.41), cotton stalk yield (kg ha-1) (3072.58), biological yield (kg ha-1) (5188.99), harvest index (40.78 %) and rain water use efficiency (3.76 mm) were recorded significantly in treatment T1- Opening furrow (Every row) 30 DAS.
