Water is one of the critical inputs for increasing productivity in any agricultural production system. Since agriculture consumes the maximum quantity of water in India, greater attention needs to be paid towards the adoption of improved water management technologies. Hence, the present study was taken up to work out the water requirement of tomato using climatological approach with coco peat media under protected cultivation This study was carried out to determine the irrigation requirement of tomato grown on Coco Peat under Protected Cultivation conditions at Research Farm of Center of Excellence on protected cultivation and precision farming under Polyhouse, College of Agriculture, IGKV, Raipur (C.G), during the Rabi season of 2016-17. The experiment was laid out in a Complete Random Design. The quality and yield response of tomato to drip irrigation was investigated. Six different irrigation levels (I1 = 0.8 IW:CPE, I2 = 0.9 IW:CPE, I3 = 0.1 IW:CPE, I4 = 1.1 IW:CPE, I5 =1.2 IW:CPE, I6 =1.3 IW:CPE) and one irrigation frequency were evaluated. The irrigation requirement of the tomato was analyzed for individual crop growth stages using climatological approach. The total seasonal water requirement comes to be 244.71 mm. The ET values for the initial stage, development stage, mid season stage and late season stage were determined as 52.38, 75.07, 72.27, 44.98 mm respectively.
