Effect of different treatments on fresh weight of tuber and soil moisture extraction pattern


Author(s): VA Apotikar, AV Solanke and GS Laharia

Abstract: The field trial was conducted during both the seasons (2009-10 and 2010-11) on PGI Farm without changing randomization. The experiment was laid out in rabi season. The various components of yield and yield contributing characters were calculated. The growth and yield contributing characters, fresh weight of tubers were higher in 1.2 IW/CPE ratio (5 irrigations at 18 to 20 days interval) and planting on 44th MW (Oct 29-Nov 04) with sugarcane trash mulch as compared to other treatments. Further, application of irrigation at 1.0 IW/CPE ratio with sugarcane trash mulching (I2M1) or early planting on 42nd MW with sugarcane trash mulching (D1M1) was followed the next in order of significant.The maximum water extraction values were 48.42 and 49.53 percent, suggesting that crop should be irrigated at 1.2 IW/CPE ratio (5 irrigations at 18 to 20 days interval) and planting to be carried during 44th MW (Oct 29-Nov 04) with sugarcane trash mulch.The soil moisture extraction was more in mulching. The mulching creates maximum available soil moisture at all the growth stages. The without mulching (26.58 and 21.91%) recorded maximum water extraction from lower soil layer (30-45 cm) resulting in less available soil moisture.
