Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2015-16 to 2017-18 to study the in-situ moisture conservation in rainfed region for increasing productivity of cotton crop at Main Dry Farming Research Station, Junagadh Agricultural University, Targhadia of North Saurashtra Agro climatic Zone of Gujarat. The experiment comprising of three main plot treatments (in-situ moisture conservation practices) and three sub plot treatments (Mulching practices) laid out in split plot design with three (3) replications. Significantly higher soil moisture content was observed due to ridge and furrow practice (T1) and plastic mulch (M1) and it was remained at par with broad bed and furrow (T2) and straw mulch, respectively.  Seed cotton and stalk yield was also significantly higher in ridge and furrow practice (T1) and plastic mulch (M1) and it was remained at par with broad bed and furrow (T2). Same trend observed in rain water use efficiency. Economic analysis revealed that the net profit and B:C ratio was recorded higher under ridge and furrow system with plastic mulch (25 micron) compared to control. Interaction effect of in-situ moisture conservation practices and mulching practices were found non significant for all the parameters.
