Abstract:
Chick pea being an economically important crop, the management of the crop is neglected. To utilize the resources efficiently to conserve the moisture and to realize maximum yield benefits, a field experiment was conducted at Agricultural College, Polasa, Jagtial, PJTSAU, during rabi, 2019-20 to study the “Influence of land configuration and mulching on economics of chick pea (Cicer arietinum L.)”. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three land configurations as main plots and four mulching treatments as sub plots and are replicated thrice. The main plot treatments included were M1-Flat bed, M2-Ridge and furrow, M3-Broad bed and furrow and sub plot treatments were S1-Control, S2- Sesamum mulch, S3-Gliricidia mulch, S4-Paddy straw mulch. Among the different land configurations, broad bed and furrows fetched higher gross returns, net returns and B:C ratio. Flat beds were found to be economically not profitable with lower gross returns, net returns and B:C ratio. Among mulching treatments gliricidia was found to be more profitable with higher gross returns, net returns and B:C ratio, while control is the least counterpart. But as far as B:C ratio is considered all the mulching treatments performed similar except control i.e. without mulch.
