Abstract

The experiment was conducted to study the effect of three irrigation regimes (100%, 80%, 60% of crop water requirement) through drip and flood irrigation along with four mulch treatments (white, yellow, black and without mulch) on weed incidence and yield of capsicum F 1 hybrid ‘Indra’. Results showed that 60 per cent water applied through drip alongwith black plastic mulch was found most effective in quelling weed. While yellow plastic mulch with 80 per cent water applied through drip was moderately effective against quelling weed. It improved crop yield.
