Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out during 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya, Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P.) to evaluate the effect of moisture conservation practices on growth and biomass productivity of sesame, greengram, urdbean and mustard under rainfed condition. Result revealed that the tallest plant of sesame (94.0 cm), greengram (37.8 cm) and urdbean (33.7 cm) was recorded under lifesaving irrigation but dry matter accumulation/plant of sesame (6.8 g), greengram (3.9 g) and urdbean (3.5 g) were significantly maximum in straw mulch 4 t/ha followed by lifesaving irrigation. In mustard the tallest plant of 195 cm was recorded under lifesaving irrigation but number of branches (6.82) and dry weight/plant (39.8 cm) were significantly superior in straw mulch treatment. The maximum biomass productivity of sesame (3070 kg/ha), greengram (3633 kg/ha), urdbean (3270 kg/ha) was recorded in straw mulch 4 t/ha however, biomass productivity of mustard (7751 kg/ha) was found significantly superior in straw mulch 4 t/ha.
