N.B. Kanade and H.M. Patil

Abstract

The experiment was conducted to fiend out the economics of different mulches and irrigation levels for cultivation of summer cucumber. It was observed that the maximum benefit cost (B:C) ratio of 4.57 was obtained in sugarcane trash mulch coupled with 75% ET irrigation level with net income of Rs.35,1919/- per hectare.The minimum B:C ratio of 2.07 was obtained due to no mulch with 50% ET irrigation level.Thus, adoption of sugarcane trash mulch coupled with 75% irrigation level for summer cucumber crop was found to be the most economical.
