A field experiment entitled “Response of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) productivity under different irrigation frequencies and mulching” was conducted during rabi season from 13th October, 2017 to 19th February, 2018 At plasticulture farm of CTAE, Udaipur. (Rajasthan). The experiment consist of nine treatment combination; Irrigation based on field capability at three irrigation frequencies of I1-single irrigation (at pre sowing only), I2-double irrigation (at pre sowing + flowering stage) and I3-triple irrigation (at pre sowing + flowering stage + pod filling stage) irrigation frequencies along with; M0-Black plastic mulch (BPM), M1-Polypropylene woven mulch (PPWM) and M2-No mulch (NM) were laid out with three replications in factorial randomized block design (FRBD). Mulching and irrigation frequencies significantly influenced the growth and yield attributes at harvest maximum plant height (77.67 cm), number of primary branches per plant (28.50), number of pod/plant (37.33), seed weight/pod (0.21 gm), and yield/hectare (20.29 q) higher in treatment combination of M1-PPWM and I2-double irrigation i.e. treatment (T5).
