Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during winter season of 2005-06 to 2007-08 at ZRS, Darisai, East Singhbhum, Jharkhand to study the comparative performance of mulching material in chick pea. Maximum grain yield (10.14q/ha) was recorded in treatment having mulch with karanj leaf followed by combination of karanj leaf and dust (8.56q/ha) and both these treatments were significantly better than the others. Soil moisture content (15.40%) in 20-30 cm depth at the time of harvest was highest in the treatment of karanj field and minimum (11.77%) in the treatment without mulch. The highest net income (Rs 13270.00) and benefit cost ratio (1.89) was obtained for mulching with karanj leaf.


Keywords: Chick pea, Mulches,Moisture content, Benefit cost ratio.
