Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at wheat research station, SDAU, Vijapur farm during rabi 2016-17, 2017-18 & 2018-19 to evaluate the “Efficient water management through drip irrigation in wheat”. The trial comprised of seven irrigation treatments with four replications designed in Randomized Block Design. The results revealed that significantly higher grain yield (54.10 q/ha) was recorded through drip scheduled at 100% PE and it was statistically at par with the treatments, 1.2 IW/CPE ratio (53.50 q/ha), 80% PE (51.10 q/ha), and 1.0 IW/CPE ratio (49.80 q/ha). Significantly higher biomass yield was recorded under 1.2 IW/CPE ratio (114.60 q/ha) and it was at par with treatments, 100% PE (109.30 q/ha), 80% PE (111.60 q/ha), and 1.0 IW/CPE ratio (107.10 q/ha). The yield attributing characters like, spikes per sq. meter, 1000 grain weight (g), grains per spike & plant height had reflected significant effect. Significantly higher number of spikes per m2 (411 nos.) was recorded under drip irrigation scheduled at 100% PE which was at par with 1.2 IW/CPE ratio (378 nos.) while significantly higher no. of grains per spike (50.2 Nos.) was recorded under drip irrigation scheduled at 100% PE. Due to significant effect of treatments, higher test weight was registered under drip irrigation scheduled at 1.0 IW/CPE ratio (47.7 g). The highest water consumption (420 mm) was recorded under check basin treatment & 1.2 IW/CPE ratio, while the highest water saving (55.55 %) was registered under drip irrigation scheduled at 60% PE.
