  To study the effect of mulching and fertilizer management practices on the growth and yield of garlic, an experiment was conducted using three kinds of mulches viz., black polyethylene, straw and water-hyacinth with a control and three types of fertilizer management practices viz., cow dung (F1), urea + TSP + MP (F2) and urea + TSP + MP + cow dung (F3) were compared with no fertilizer/manure. Plants grown under black polyethylene, water hyacinth and straw mulches were produced the yields of 5.80, 5.70 and 5.48 t ha-1, respectively which were 39, 36.6 and 31.41% higher than the control (4.17 t ha-1). The effect of black polyethylene and water hyacinth mulch were almost similar on the growth and yield of garlic. On the other hand, the crops growing with urea + TSP + MP and urea + TSP + MP + cow dung and only cow dung gave yields of 6.36, 6.03 and 5.23 t ha-1, respectively which showed about 80.68, 71.30 and 48.57% increased over the control (3.52 t ha-1). The interaction effects of mulching and fertilizers did not exhibit significant variations. Though the application of black polyethylene mulch is somewhat hazardous, if it is possible to use the water hyacinth and black polyethylene mulch along with F2 and F3 were suitable for increasing production.

  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of tillage practices and nitrogen rate on organic matter and total %N content in Soil. Tillage and nitrogen had significant positive impact on organic matter and nitrogen content in Soil. Maximum organic content (0.69%) was measured in no tillage treatment (T0) at surface layer and the highest total nitrogen content (0.163%) was recorded by 10 cm deep tillage (T1) at surface layer. Maximum organic matter content (0.63%) and total nitrogen (0.176%) was observed at surface layer with the application of 105 kg N ha-1. The interaction effect of tillage and nitrogen on organic matter content was not statistically significant. the highest organic matter content (0.71%) was measured in no tillage with higher rates of nitrogen (105 kg N ha-1). Maximum nitrogen content (0.181%) was found by T1N3 treatment at 0-10 cm depth.
