Abstract

 

The field experiments were carried out to compare two irrigation methods, namely trickle and furrow irrigation methods on profile water uptake in turnip crop. The total area (15.0ft 30.0ft)was divided into two plots. The plot of 1515ft was occupied by trickle irrigation method, while another plot of 1515ftwasoccupied by furrow irrigation system. Water consumed in furrow irrigation method was 19872 liters, which was more than trickle irrigation method in which the consumed water was 2320 liters. The Yield of turnip by furrow irrigation method was 39732.05 kg/ ha while the Yield of turnip by Drip irrigation method was 42258.37 kg/ha. It observed that the yield of turnip by Drip irrigation method was 18.21 kilogram per liter as compared to furrow irrigation method while the production of turnip was 2.00 kilogram per liter. From this study it was found that micro trickle irrigation methods resulted in high yield than furrow irrigation method. The amount and plan of water uptake varied with irrigation methods. This could be provided valuable information on the aspect of agricultural management.

Key words: drip irrigation, furrow irrigation, water saving, yield, turnip crop.
