The experimental study “Effect of Irrigation scheduling, Mulching and Hydrogel on Maize (Zea mays)”has been carried out at lovely professional university. The study has been carried out with different treatment combinations of irrigation scheduling, mulching and hydrogel. The effect was observed on plant height, number of leaves, leaf area index, days of silking. The treatment combination of 6kg mulch and 100 grams hydrogel shown the significant effect on maize crop. With these combinations the average height was recorded (78.2 cm, 228.1cm and 230.4 cm) at 30 DAS, 60 DAS and 90 DAS, number of leaves were recorded (5.8, 12.7 and 14.2), LAI (1.5, 3.5 and 4.1).
