Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during late kharif season of the year   2016-17 at Agricultural College Farm, Mahanandi (Andhra Pradesh) to study the effect of density, planting patterns and mulching on yield, yield parameters of pigeonpea under drip irrigation. The study was laid out in randomized block design with nine treatments and  three replications. The yield attributes viz., pods branch-1, pods plant-1, seeds pod-1 pod yield plant-1, hundred seed weight and seed yield were maximum with 120/60 cm × 20 cm as paired rows with plastic mulch in pairs. Higher stalk yield was noticed with spacing of 180/60 cm × 20 cm as paired rows with plastic mulch in pairs. Number of seeds pod-1 and hundred seed weight and harvest index of pigeonpea did not differ significantly among the treatments.
