This study investigates the intricate dynamics of organic mulching on maize yield parameters, focusing on the specific treatments of wheat straw, farm manure, rice husk, and sugarcane trash. The research systematically examines the effects of these organic materials on critical yield parameters, including plant height, grain yield, straw yield, and overall biological yield. Employing a rigorous experimental approach, each mulch treatment is meticulously assessed for its impact on moisture retention, weed suppression, and soil enrichment. The outcomes of this exploration not only shed light on the nuanced interactions between maize crops and organic mulches but also offer practical insights for optimizing agricultural practices. Tailoring the selection of organic mulching materials emerges as a promising strategy for enhancing maize harvests, with implications for sustainable and resilient farming systems.
