Effect of organic and inorganic mulches on soil-moisture conservation, weed suppression and yield of elephant-foot yam (Amorphophallus paeoniifolius)



Effect of organic and inorganic mulches on soil-moisture conservation, weed suppression and yield of elephant-foot yam (Amorphophallus paeoniifolius)



Indian Journal of Agronomy 51(2): 154-156



A field investigation on elephant-foot yam (Amorphophallus paeoniifolius Blume) was carried out during the pre-rainy and rainy seasons (kharif) of 2001 and 2002 with various mulch materials, viz. transparent polythene, black polythene, wheat straw, paddy straw, banana leaf, water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and cowpea (Vigna sp.) as cover crop.
