Effect of tillage and mulching on yield and yield attributing characters of pigeonpea



Effect of tillage and mulching on yield and yield attributing characters of pigeonpea



Advances in Plant Sciences 19(2): 497-499



A field experiment was conducted during kharif-2003 to study the effect of tillage and mulching on yield and yield attributing characteristics of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L.). The yield attributes like number of matured pods per plant, number of grain per pod and grain yield per plant were significantly higher with 30 cm deep ploughing by tractor plough. The highest grain and straw yield were registered with 30 cm deep ploughing by tractor plough. Mulching with wheat straw @ 5 t ha(-1) followed by groundmit shell @ 10 t ha(-1) resulted in significantly higher number of matured pod per plant, number of grain per pod, grain yield per plant and grain and straw yield over no mulch. The interaction between tillage and mulch were non significant.
