Abstract:

The studies were conducted at Research Farm of the Department of Vegetable Science during 2016-17 and 2017-18 to evaluate the effect of irrigation methods viz., drip and furrow irrigation on growth parameters of four potato cultivars viz., Kufri Pukhraj, Kufri Surya, Kufri Pushkar and Kufri Bahar. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with four replications. The observations were recorded on plant emergence at 30 days, number of shoots per hill at 90 days and plant height at 30, 60 and 90 days after planting. Results revealed that the drip irrigation gave highest value for all the growth parameters as compared to furrow irrigation. The Kufri Pushkar had maximum growth, whereas, the minimum plant emergence and plant height was recorded with Kufri Surya but the number of shoots per hill was recorded minimum in Kufri Pukhraj. Based on the two years results, the potato cultivar Kufri Pushkar with drip irrigation proved best for the growth for potato plants.
