Abstract:

Research results indicated significant variation in all the vegetative growth attributes and yield parameters in different drip irrigation and mulches. The maximum number of branches per vine, length of vine, number of leaves per vine and leaf area were recorded with 1.0 ETc as compared to other drip irrigation treatments at 60, 90 DAT and harvest. However, in respect to earliness i.e. days to first flowering, fruiting and harvesting were also observed with the treatment 1.0 ETc. The maximum fruit length (13.04 cm), fruit girth (3.67 cm), average fruit weight (110.52 g), number of fruits per vine (12.99), fruit yield per vine (1.39 kg) and Further, 0.8 ETc gave at par values for all these parameters with 1.0 ETc. Among various mulching; number of branches per vine, length of vine, number of leaves per vine (27.32), leaf area (405.75 cm2) and yield attributes namely, fruit length (13.16 cm), fruit girth (3.55 cm), number of fruits per vine (11.91), average fruit weight (110.83 g), fruit yield per vine (1.37 kg) and fruit yield per hectare (561.31 q ha-1). The treatment combination of 1.0 ETc + black polythene mulch gave higher values for number of fruits per vine (13.48), fruit yield per vine (1.51 kg) and fruit yield (622.55 q ha-1).
