Abstract:

Four cultivars of sorghum were tested under three in situ moisture conservation practices during kharif seasons of 2015 and 2016 at Kanpur. Results revealed that the organic residue mulch @ 4 t ha-1 on soil surface in between the crop rows after 25 days of sowing brought out significant improvement in crop canopy development and yields over ridging and furrowing in between the crop rows at 25 DAS and farmer's practice (control). Total water use and splash loss were higher under farmer's practice over other moisture conservation practices. The trend was reverse for WUE and splash loss. Mulching treatment also exhibited higher net return as compared to other treatments. However, this treatment was failed to exhibit superiority in B:C ratio over ridging and furrowing plot due to additional cost of mulch application. Among cultivars, Ratna-40 considered to be the most promising in terms of yield and net return.
