Abstract:

Water use studies in linseed were conducted during 2005-06, in Akola, Maharashtra, India, under 3 irrigation levels (no irrigation; irrigation at flowering stage; and irrigation at flowering and capsule filling stages) in the main plot and 4 moisture conservation practices (no mulch; soil mulch at 30 days after sowing (DAS); M2 + mulch with weed biomass 2.5 t/ha at 45 DAS; and M2 + mulch with wheat straw 2.5 t/ha at 45 DAS) in the sub-plot. I2 (irrigation at flowering and capsule filling stages) recorded the highest yield of 1182 kg/ha, but I1 (irrigation at flowering stage) recorded the highest water use efficiency of 5.32 kg ha mm-1. On the other hand, M4 (M2 + mulch with wheat straw) recorded the highest yield of 1074 kg/ha and water use efficiency of 9.97 kg ha mm-1, followed by M3 (M2 + mulch with weed biomass).
