Abstract:

A field experiment were conducted with summer okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench) during the two succeeding years i.e. summer 2017 and summer 2018, at Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani. To evaluate the effect of different irrigation levels and plastic mulches on plant growth parameters. The effect of three drip irrigation levels viz. 0.8ETc, 1.0ETc and 1.2ETc in conjunction with transparent, black and silver-black plastic mulch were studied on plant growth and yield attributing parameters of okra. The field experiment was laid out in split plot design, in which three irrigation levels were assigned to main plots and four mulch treatment to sub plots The treatments were laid out in split plot design, in which three irrigation levels were assigned to main plots and four mulch treatment to sub plots. The study indicated that 100% irrigation requirement met through drip irrigation along with silver-black plastic mulch (I2M3) gave the highest number of branches (3.17cm), number of fruits (24.71), fruit length (14.93 cm)  and  maximum fruit weight (15.53 g) and fruit yield (476.27 g) per plant when compared to other treatments throughout the growing period.
