Production and Economics of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Under Drip Fertigation

Abdullah Tasal | D. D. Pawar

Abstract: A field study was conducted at Irrigation Water Management Farm, Post Graduate Institute, M. P. K. V. , Rahuri, Maharashtra, India during rabi season of 2013-2014. The experiment was laid out in randomize block design with nine treatments and three replications. The treatment consisted of five fertiliser application rates as 100 % recommended dose with foliar sprays, 100 %, 80 %, 60 % and 0 % under drip fertigation and compared with conventional irrigation and fertilisation. The treatment of 100 % drip fertigation with foliar sprays was found to be more beneficial than conventional method of irrigation and fertilization in respect of increase in yield (25.6 %) with 44.5 % water saving which brought 0.8 ha more area under irrigation. In terms of economics, the same treatment was found more profitable with net extra income of Rs.61, 933 as compared to conventional method.
