Abstract

Results of a trial carried out in order to study on muskmelon (Cucumis melo L. var. inodorus Naud.) the interaction between transplanting date, mulching application and irrigation regime, are reported. The ahead of transplanting did not cause an irrigation water saving, because the prolongation of the cropping cycle nullified the positive effect of the end winter rainfall. Irrigation regime positively influenced muskmelon yield, especially when the total water use was restored with a three days irrigation interval. The mulching technique did not cause a significant yield increase, except in the treatment with supplementary irrigation, where the yield increase mode economically viable the use of plastic mulch.
