The field experiment was conducted on watermelon (Citrulluslonatus thumb) cv. sugar baby at Krishi Vigyan  Kendra, Bhilwara,  MPUAT, Udaipur during summer season of  2014 to study the impact of mulching material on the growth, yield and quality of watermelon cv. sugar baby in randomized block design (R.B.D.) in three replications. All the plant growth, yield and quality characters were superior with silver mulch while plants without mulch (control) resulted poor growth and yield. With economic point of view, silver mulch resulted in the highest net return and found to be more economical with highest cost: benefit ratio.

Keywords: Watermelon, Mulch, Growth and yield parameter
