Abstract:

Seed spices are important commercial crops of arid and semiarid regions of India and accounting major contribution for domestic and export market. In these regions water is one of the main constraint in crop production since the growing areas are deficit in annual rainfall and these crops are grown during winter season requires assured irrigation for successful production. Among many irrigation methods including surface irrigation, drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation are being followed widely among growing areas depends on availability of water and micro irrigation facility. But considering the importance of water for future generation and also present need, it is most necessary to workout optimum irrigation level, critical stage of water requirement and method of irrigation in seed spices to save water and to achieve higher productivity. Many research works are carried out on irrigation scheduling and water requirements of the seed spices on the basis of meteorological parameters, evapo-transpiration, soil moisture content, soil and leaf water potential. The review of the literature revealed promising results on irrigation management in seed spices. Research works on irrigation management in seed spice have been documented to understand the scope, drawbacks and feasibility to increase the productivity and to economize the water use. Many of such recommendations and present status of irrigation techniques and schedules for seed spices are presented in this article.
