Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2015 to find out the suitable irrigation level and plant population forgetting good performance by summer baby corn, at the instructional Farm of the Rajasthan College of agriculture, MPUAT, Udaipur, Rajasthan. The treatments consisted of three irrigation level viz. 0.8IW/CPE (I1), 1.0IW/CPE (I2) and 1.2IW/CPE (I3) with six plant population levels viz. 66,666 plants per ha (P1), 83,333 plants per ha (P2), 88,888 plants per ha (P3), 1,11,111 plants per ha (P4), 1,33,333 plants per ha (P5) and 1,66,666 plants per ha (P6). The results showed that the baby corn irrigated at 1.0IW/CPE (I2) produced taller plants with higher baby corn length and width, dry matter production, number of baby corn per plant, weight of baby corn which results in higher green fodder and baby corn yield. Irrigation at 1.0IW/CPE (I2), produced higher baby corn yield with and without husk (55.47and19.80q/ha) than 0.8IW/CPE (I1) and 1.2IW/CPE (I3). Among plant population levels, 83,333 plants per ha (P2) gave better baby corn yield with husk and increased yield of baby corn by 2.35% over the 66,666 plants per ha (P1) and proved significantly superior on the other treatments.
