Abstract:

The present research work has been carried out to understand the effect of different strength of jute agro textiles on yield and moisture use efficiency of green gram (Vigna radiata L.) grown for two successive years 2016 and 2017 during the pre-kharif season from last week of February to 2nd week of May at the farmer’s field in the Kamalpur village, Chatna block, Bankura, West Bengal. The experiment was conducted with five treatments viz. T1 –1000 GSM, T2 – 800 GSM, T3 – 600 GSM, T4 – 400 GSM jute agro textiles and T5 – farmer’s practices where GSM = g/m2. Results showed that, the yield is increased with each treatment, attaining the highest value of 6.74 q/ha in T1 which is 185.6 % more than control. The moisture use efficiency of the crop, was increased significantly by 70.27% (on an average) due to the treatments over control. Though the best results were obtained in T1, but the increment occurred in a declining pattern from T2 to T1 i.e. further increase in strength after T2 was not proved to be efficient.
