Abstract: A study was conducted to determine the economics of different fertigation levels under mulched and unmulched conditions in chilli at tarai conditions of Uttarakhand during spring-summer seasons of 2016. The experiment was carried out in two factorial randomized block design with four fertigation levels (fertigation at 120, 100, 80 and 60 percent of RDF) along with control and RDF applied through traditional method under bicolour polyethylene mulch and unmulched condition. The results of experiment disclosed that performance of chilli was influenced by different levels of fertigation and also influenced by polyethylene mulch and unmulched conditions. As far as net return and B:C ratio was concerned, maximum net return of Rs. 2,39,205.16 per ha and B:C ratio of 3.28 was recorded in treatment combination P9M2 i.e., fertigation at 80 % of recommended dose of fertilizer applied twice a week along with polyethylene mulch.
