Abstract:

Crop water Requirement (CWR) is the key to design a suitable irrigation system for a particular crop. In this paper CWR of major vegetable crops for six agro-climatic zones of Madhya Pradesh is estimated on the basis of Reference Evapotranspiration. The study is performed for major vegetable crops namely tomato, onion, pea, brinjal, potato and okra. The crop water requirement found to vary with stages of the crop growth and the reference evapotranspiration. For most of the crops, water requirement is found maximum during development and mid season stage and found minimum during initial and maturity stages of the crops. The mean annual sum of CWR of vegetable crops in all districts was found highest for Brinjal, in winter season it is maximum in Barwani (32.87 litre) during peak period and minimum in Alirajpur (5.59 litre) during lean period whereas in monsoon season maximum in Neemuch (23.68 litre) during peak period and minimum in Jhabua (5.43 litre) during lean period and lowest for pea, in winter season it is maximum in Ratlam (6.22 litre) during peak period and minimum in Dindori (1.31 litre) during lean period.
