Field experiment was conducted at instructional farm, Jaguli, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Mohanpur, Nadia, West Bengal, during pre-kharif seasons of 2016 and 2017 to study crop microclimatic influence towards different yield attributing factors and yield of summer baby corn (Zea mays L.) var. G5414 F1-hybrid under irrigation levels like IW: CPE ratio at 1.0, 0.8 and 0.6 in main plot and mulches like no- mulch (control), polythene mulch, paddy straw mulch and jute mulch in sub plot under split-plot design with 3 replications. The results indicated that absorbed PAR (µmol m-2 sec-1) was higher for IW: CPE 1.0 and with paddy straw mulch. Light use efficiency (g/µmol m-2 sec-1) showed highest values for IW: CPE 0.8 with polythene mulch. Yield attributes like cob length and weight with and without husk were found maximum with IW: CPE 1.0 and polythene mulch both the years. Highest baby corn yield (1795 kg/ha) was achieved in combination of IW: CPE 1.0 and polythene mulch treatment. The APAR and LUE were measured at certain intervals for both the years and found to be positively correlated with different yield forming factors and yield in most of the times.

Keywords: Baby corn, Absorbed PAR (APAR), Light use efficiency (LUE), Irrigation, Mulch
