The experiment was carried out at Precision Farming Development Centre (PFDC), Department of Horticulture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.) during Kharif 2010 and 2011. Experiment was conducted in Randomized block design comprising of four treatments viz. control, 60%, 80%, and 100%, fertigation (water soluble fertilizers) levels under the greenhouse condition and open field condition. Observations were taken plant height, stem girth, chlorophyll content, days to first flowering, days to first fruiting and fruit yield.

Field experiment was carried out in the experimental field of Horticulture department, IGKV, Raipur (Chhattisgarh) during the year 2003-2006. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with four treatments i.e. 1) Red plastic mulch, 2) Black plastic mulch, 3) White plastic mulch and 4) Surface irrigation without mulch was treated as control (recommended cultivation). The experiment was laid out to assess their importance as mulching component in Tomato cultivation. The study revealed that drip irrigation with red plastic mulch of 25-micron thickness showed superior yield and yield attributing characters as compared to other mulched treatments. The yield of tomato in red plastic mulch, black plastic mulch, white plastic mulch and control plots were 335.75, 324.62 312.18 and 230.72 q/ha respectively. These results showed that the red, black and white plastic mulch increased the yield of tomato by 45.52, 40.06 and 35.30 % respectively over the control. The vegetative growth flowering and quality parameters were best under red-mulched plants as camped to control. Water use efficiency and water savings were found to be highest under red plastic mulch and lowest under non-mulch condition. The net income was recorded higher under red plastic mulch (Rs. 85800) and lowest in without plastic mulch (Rs. 38020). Similarly benefit cost ratio was also recorded most economical in red plastic mulch as compared to non-mulch condition.

The present investigation was carried out at the Horticultural Research Farm, Precision Farming Development Centre, Deptt. of Horticulture, Raipur (C.G.) with two environmental i.e. controlled environment or green house and open field condition. The results under this study regarding yield and yield attributing characters under protected environment showed better as compared to open field condition. In protected environment (green house) the natural environment is modified to suitable conditions for optimum plant growth, which ultimately provides quality vegetables. Capsicum cv. California Wonder is most important vegetable and can be grown profitably under protected environment. The germination percentage was found higher (52.47%) under green house as compared to open field condition (37.32%). The different growth characters, like plant height, No. of primary branches, No. of leaves, No. of fruits per plant, length of fruits and girth of fruits are also higher under green house condition. Under protected environment the yield was two times more (5.18 kg/m2) as compared to open field condition (2.46 kg/m2).
