Abstract:
The present investigation entitled, “Effect of dates of sowing and mulching on number of branches per plant, plant height, number of pods per plant, pod length and number of seeds per of Summer Mash (<em>Vigna Mungo</em>)” was carried out at Experimental Farm, Mr Yadvinder Singh at VPO-Bhangala Tehsil Abohar District Fazilka - Punjab<strong> </strong>during kharif 2014. The experiment comprising of two sowing dates (5<sup>th</sup> and 25<sup>th</sup> April) in main plot, three mulch levels (0, 3 and 6 t/ha) in sub plot was laid out in split plot design. The treatment combinations were replicated four times. The date of sowing showed beneficial effect on number of branches per plant as well as plant height and were 8.5 and 52.9 cm respectively. The date of sowing also significantly increased effect on number of pods/plant (13.3), length of pod (4.8 cm) and number of seeds/pod (6). However, the interaction effect between dates of sowing and mulch levels was non-significant. On the basis of present investigation, it is concluded that sowing of summer mash on 5<sup>th</sup> April with mulch 6 t/ha best results. The findings can be useful for improving productivity and profitability of summer mash.
