Abstract:

The field experiment was carried out to study the effect of different irrigation regimes and mulches on yield and economics of drip irrigated tomato during two consecutive years of rabi 2016-17 and 2017-18 at the research farm of AICRP on Irrigation Water Management, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design with three replications and twelve treatments combination comprising of three irrigation regimes viz. irrigation level at 0.6 PE (I1), irrigation level at 0.8 PE (I2) and irrigation level at 1.0 PE (I3) in main plot and four polythene mulch treatments viz. black polythene mulch (M1), silver black polythene mulch (M2), transparent polythene mulch (M1) and control (M4) in sub plot. Based on the pooled results it was observed that higher fruit yield, gross monetary return and net monetary return was recorded in irrigation level at 0.8 PE with silver black polythene mulch (I2M2) over rest of treatment combination, however it was comparable with treatment combination of irrigation level at 0.8 PE with black polythene mulch (I2M1) and irrigation level at 0.6 PE with silver black polythene mulch (I1M2). Similarly higher benefit cost ratio was also obtained in irrigation level at 0.8 PE with silver black polythene mulch (I2M2).
