Effect of different mulches on yield, plant height, nitrogen uptake, weed control, soil moisture and economics of tomato cultivation

Effect of different mulches on yield, plant height, nitrogen uptake, weed control, soil moisture and economics of tomato cultivation

Progressive Horticulture 34(2): 208-210

The effects of different mulches (black polyethylene, transparent polyethylene, silver black polyethylene, pea straw and no mulch) on the productivity of tomato hybrid Naveen 2000 were investigated at Solan, Himachal Pradesh, India. Fruit yield was highest with silver black polyethylene mulch (76.42 t/ha), followed by black polyethylene mulch (73.51 t/ha). The highest N uptake was recorded with silver black polyethylene mulch (90.38 kg/ha), followed by black polyethylene mulch (89.82 kg/ha).
