A commercial drip irrigation system was evaluated for small scale cucumber crop at College of Agricultural Engineering field irrigation laboratory, located at Bapatla, Guntur district, Andhra Pradesh state during February 2013 to April 2013. In the field study, an attempt was made to evaluate the performance of the irrigation system in terms of on the uniformity distribution, wetting pattern, sphericity and root distribution. The statistic uniformity and absolute uniformity were within the acceptable limits. It was observed revealed that inline emitter used in the study, can wet horizontal distance up to 50 cm from the source, while the depth of wetting increased with the rate of application. The root distribution was observed to be confined mainly to 60 cm sphere and the optimum rate of water to be application was ensured under the prevailing conditions. The average sphericity of cucumber fruit was observed 0.96, which was 3.12 % higher than flood irrigation crop.

Keywords: Drip irrigation, Uniformity, Wetting pattern, Application rate and root distribution
