Abstract:
The experiment was carried out at village Churi Wala Dhana in the field of Mr. Dalip Kumar during April-July 2018 to study effect of different types of mulches on yield contributing characters and yield of okra. The different mulches Paddy Straw Mulch,<strong> </strong>Black Mulch, White Mulch, Control (without mulching) were used in this experiment. The effect of different mulches on plant height, average fruit length, average fruit weight and yield per plot was observed. Out of these four treatments paddy straw shows best result as compare to other treatments. The result obtained that Plant height was maximum (56.80cm) observed in paddy straw mulch followed by control (55.48cm), white plastic mulch (55.22cm) and minimum (52.36 cm) in black polythene mulch. Maximum average fruit weight (9.22g) and fruit length (9.00cm) were also observed in paddy straw mulch. The maximum total fruit yield of okra per plot was obtained in paddy straw mulch (19.21 kg/plot) and least in (16.82 kg/plot) in black polythene mulch. Controlled treatment gave second best result. The least results were obtained from black plastic mulch.
