Field studies were conducted at PFDC farm, of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore to evaluate the effect of plastic mulching on yield of grafted brinjal under drip irrigation. The experiments were laid in Strip Plot Design with twenty seven treatments which included three mulching levels such as 25 µ thickness plastic mulch, 50 µ thickness plastic mulch and control; three Irrigation levels at 60 per cent ET0, 80 per cent ET0 and 100 per cent ET0 and three fertigation levels with 80 per cent, 100 per cent and 120 per cent RDF which were replicated thrice. Daily water requirement was calculated based monthly average evaporation. Its observed that treatment gave highest yield of 83.3 t.ha-1 under 25 µ thickness plastic mulch at 80 per cent ET0 level and 100 per cent RDF and lowest yield of 18.1 t.ha-1 in control plot with 60 per cent ET0 and 80 per cent RDF. It can be concluded that the use of mulch increased the yield of the grafted brinjal as compared to the treatments without mulch condition under drip irrigation.
