Abstract:
An experiment was conducted during <em>Rabi</em> season of 2017 at Experimental Farm of Department of Agriculture, Mata Gujri College, Shri Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab to study the effect of irrigation and mulching on barley (<em>Hordeum vulgare</em>L.) in Central Punjab. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with eight treatments <em>viz</em>. T<sub>2 </sub>- mulch (paddy straw @ 4 t/ha) + irrigation at CRI stage, T<sub>3 </sub><sub>-</sub> irrigationat CRI stage, T<sub>4 </sub>-mulch (paddy straw @ 6 t/ha) + irrigation at CRI stage, T<sub>5 </sub>- Two irrigation at CRI and tillering T<sub>6 </sub>- mulch (paddystraw @ 6 t/ha) + irrigation at CRI and flowering, T<sub>7 </sub>- mulch (paddy straw @ 4 t/ha) + irrigation at CRI and flowering, T<sub>8 </sub>- irrigation at CRI, MT &amp; heading stage were compared with T<sub>1</sub>- control treatment. The treatments were replicated thrice. On the basis of result summarized the maximum growth parameters <em>viz</em>. Plant height (cm), number of tillers in running meter, leaf area index and dry matter accumulation (g/m) were maximum with the application ofT<sub>6</sub>- mulch (paddystraw @ 6 t/ha) of Rs. 87784.66 ha and maximum benefit: cost ratio is 1.15.
