Abstract: The aim of this investigation was to study the impact of mulching and fertigation on growth and yield of grafted brinjal (Solanum melongena l.) under drip irrigation system. There were 18 treatments replicated thrice in a Strip Plot Design with three factors viz., plastic mulching, fertigation levels and irrigation levels. The result unveiled that, application of plastic mulching and fertigation treatments showed significantly enhanced plant height, number of branches, fruit weight, number of fruits and yield. Application of fertilizers through drip ensures proper utilization and results in better yield. Plastic mulching along with drip fertigation, control weeds and further increases the efficiency of the system.
