Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to examine the effect of different plastic colour mulches viz., white on black, silver on black and complete black on water saving and yield of French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) variety Arka Komal under different drip irrigation levels at Raichur, is situated in the Northeastern dry zone which comes under Zone II in region-1 of Karnataka.. The treatments were laid in spilt plot design with four replications and sixteen treatments. The irrigation levels used were 60, 80, 100 and 120 per cent of ET. The depth of water applied for 60, 80, 100 and 120 per cent of ET was 110.94 mm, 147.92 mm, 185.10 mm and 222.09 mm, respectively. The per cent of water saving over 100 per cent ET was 40.06, 20.08 and -19.98 for 60, 80 and 120 per cent ET, respectively. The cost benefit ratio of French bean was highest in white on black plastic mulch with 80 per cent ET.
