The field experiment was conducted at College farm, Gwalior in M.P. during the rainy (kharif) season of 2013 and 2014 to study the Effect of Mulching practices, Fertility levels on Seed yield and Qualities of Cluster bean Varieties. Results revealed that plastic mulch significantly increased the seed, protein and gum yield over the weed biomass mulch and no mulch. Variety HG-563 recorded significantly higher seed yield, protein yield and gum content and yield as compared to RGC-1055. Among the fertility levels, application of 75% RDF + VC 5 t/ha resulted in significantly higher seed yield, protein, gum content and yield and harvest index over all the remaining fertility levels.
