Effect of mulching and weed control methods on retardation of soil moisture losses and weed suppression in tea


, : Effect of mulching and weed control methods on retardation of soil moisture losses and weed suppression in tea. Journal of Research, Birsa Agricultural University 7(2): 127-129

A 25-micron black plastic mulch gave a 0.841 daily pan evaporation : average daily depletion ratio and 87.56% weed control in an experiment during 1990 at the Mohurgong and Gulma Tea Estates, West Bengal, India.

Black Teflon FEP-fluorocarbon film (BFF), vinyl films (green (GVF), yellow (YVF) or transparent (TVF)) and white polythene film (WEF) were compared as mulching materials on a lettuce crop. The reduction in light intensity under the films varied wi...
