Abstract:

The experiment was conducted during the year of 2015-2016 under semi-climate greenhouse condition at Center for Protected Cultivation Technology (CPCT), farm at Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), New Delhi, to study the effect of electrical conductivity of irrigation water on crop water uptake. The yellow colored popular and widely accepted capsicum variety Swarna was selected for the study. Four strategies/treatments based on electrical conductivity of the fertigation solution were applied with three replications during the entire growing period. The maximum water uptake was observed for fifteen plants are 246 kg and minimum 17.85 kg during Fruiting and Vegetative stage respectively corresponding to EC 2.8 and 2.7 dS/m for their respective stage.
