The effects of irrigation with or without mulching on the performance of aubergine cv. Pusa Kranti were studied in Bikaner, Rajasthan, India, during rabi 2000/01. The plots were drip-irrigated or surface-irrigated with 1.0, 0.8 or 0.6 volume of water with or without a plastic mulch. Irrigation with 0.6 volume of water with mulching gave the highest yield (760.90 quintal/ha), followed by irrigation with 1.0 volume of water without mulching (741.55 quintal/ha). The yield was significantly improved with drip irrigation over the traditional method of surface irrigation. The average quantities of water applied per plant under irrigation with 1.0, 0.8 and 0.6 volume of water were 2.29, 1.8, 1.37 and 2.29 litres per day. [1 quintal=100 kg].
