In present study the treatments comprises four levels of EC (0.87 EC, 4EC, 8EC and 12ECdS m-1) for Saline water irrigation, three levels Mulches (without Mulch, sugar cane trash at the rate of 10 tons ha-1 and 50 μ black plastic mulch) and two varieties. The experiment laid out in a randomized complete block design with three replication.Among the various saline irrigation water treatments under 4EC dS m-1 treatment higher value of transpiration rate, photosynthesis, pod length, pod girth and pod yield per plant were recorded as compared to EC8 and EC12 dS m-1. Black plastic mulch and sugarcane trash mulch significantly gave higher value of transpiration rate, photosynthesis, pod length and pod yield per plant as compared to without mulch except pod girth which was found lesser value under both types of mulches.
