Effect of various types of mulching on growth, yield and quality of different processable cultivars of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)


Author(s): Bhart and Rakesh Kumar

Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess the effect of various types of mulching on growth, yield and quality of different processable cultivars of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.). The experiment was conducted under field conditions at the Student’s Research Farm, Khalsa College, Amritsar. The experiment was laid out in split plot design (SPD) which consisted of main plot treatments of mulches such as white polyethylene sheet, black polyethylene sheet, straw mulch and no mulch and sub plot treatments consisted three processable varieties such as Lady Rosetta, Kufri Chipsona-3 and Kufri Surya with three replicates. The results revealed that application of mulch treatments and cultivars affected significantly potato vegetative growth and tuber yield. The cultivation of ‘Kufri Chipsona-3’ with application of black polyethylene sheet mulch resulted in significantly higher values of growth, yield and quality attributes. This is the best combination for getting higher yield and quality of processable tuber yield under Punjab conditions.
