Pemberian Mulsa dalam Budidaya Cabai Rawit di Lahan Kering: Dampaknya terhadap Hasil Tanaman dan Aliran Permukaan
District, Special Region of Yogyakarta. The experiment was arranged in a randomized complete block design consisted of four mulch treatments (rice straw, litter, plastic/silver black polyethylene, and without mulch) and four replications. The observed variables were the growth parameter (plant height), soil moisture content, soil temperature, and yield (number and
weight of chilli). The result showed that application of mulches did not affect plant height and yield of chilli, but increased number of fruit. The best mulch for chilli crops in upland area was rice straw, that yielded the highest increase in number of fruit. Mulch as a soil conservation practice reduced runoff coefficient, while dicharge and extended of the reponse time were reduced only at rainfall less than 21 mm.
