Title : Influence of Irrigation Schedules based on IW-CPE ratio and Hydrogel Levels on Isabgol (Plantago Ovata Forsk.) Productivity

Abstract :

A field experiment was carried out at Rajasthan College of Agriculture, MPUAT, Udaipur, to study Response of isabgol (Plantago ovata Forsk.) to hydrogel levels under different irrigation schedules during the rabi seasons of 2018-19 and 2019-20. The experimental design split plot design was used comprises main plot factor four irrigation schedule viz., IW-CPE ratio 0.20, 0.30, 0.40 and 0.50 sub plot factor hydrogel levels which also having four levels viz., control, 2.5, 5.0 and 7.5 kg ha-1 combined having 16 treatment combinations, which were replicated four time. The results revealed that application of irrigation at IW-CPE ratio of 0.50 had significant effect on yield and yield attributes which was at par with IW-CPE ratio 0.40 and both these ratio significantly improve yield over IW-CPE ratio of 0.30 and 0.20 during both years. Application of 7.5 kg hydrogel ha-1 recorded maximum yield and yield attributes which was found at par with application of 5.0 kg hydrogel ha-1 and both these levels significantly enhanced isabgol crop yield and yield attributes over application of 2.5 kg hydrogel ha-1 and control during both years.
