Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted in the year 2014-2015 to study the effect of drip irrigation levels and black plastic mulch on bell pepper production under naturally ventilated polyhouse. The experiment was carried out in Randomized Block Design with four drip irrigation levels (100, 80, 60 and 40 % of crop water requirement) and surface irrigation in conjunction with or without plastic mulch. Better results were found in drip irrigation system as compared to surface irrigation both under mulched and unmulched treatment. As far as net return and Benefit Cost ratio was concerned, maximum net return of Rs 19,026.04 /100 m2 and benefit cost ratio of 2.56 was noticed in treatment receiving irrigation at 80 percent crop water requirement through drip system under plastic mulch.


Keywords: Drip irrigation, Bell pepper, Black plastic mulch, Economics, Benefit cost ratio.
