Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2005-06 and 2006-07 at Faizabad to evaluate irrigation techniques with mulching for water economy in relation to growth, yield and quality of potato. All the growth, yield and quality parameters were higher when irrigation was provided to each furrow at 25mm CPE along with mulching, however, irrigation at stolen formation, tuber initiation ant tuber development stages along with mulching incurred maximum benefit: cost ratio and showed economic viability by saving 66 per cent of irrigation water.
