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 15×15ft was occupied by trickle irrigation method, while another
plot of 15×15ftwasoccupied 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.
