Abstract

Effects of Different Mulching Materials on the Growth Performance of Okra in Maiduguri

A study was carried out in the demonstration farm of Ramat Polytechnic Maiduguri to investigate the effects of different mulching materials on the growth performance of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.). The treatment include plastic mulch, sorghum straw mulch, sawdust mulch and control (No mulch) which were laid out in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) and replicated three times. The results show that growth parameter like plant height, weed count and flower bud count has no significant difference between the treatments but all treatment has some superioty to the control. It is evident from this work soil moisture retention was higher with the use of sorghum straw and polythene mulch and soil temperature was lowest in sorghum straw mulch.
