Abstract:

An experiment entitled, “Standardization of drip irrigation scheduling for Jasmine (Jasminum sambac Ait. cv. Ramanathapuram Gundumalli) using Theta Probe moisture meter” was carried out at Farmer’s holding, Neithalur Colony in Tiruchirappalli District, Tamil Nadu, India from November, 2015 to May, 2016 to standardize the irrigation requirement and irrigation frequency for Jasmine. Factorial randomized block design was employed with three factors each two levels and replicated thrice. The investigation consisted of two levels each on soil depth, moisture depletion percentage and quantity of irrigation water viz., soil depth @ 15 cm and 30 cm, moisture percentage 40 % and 60 % and quantity of irrigation water 15 l and 20 l per plant and flood irrigation (control). The jasmine plants receiving 20 l of irrigation water per plant when moisture depletion percentage reaches 60 % at 30 cm soil depth were performing well in all the growth, yield and agronomic attributes. Hence, it is recommended that, irrigation @ 20 l per plant at 4 day intervals can be adopted for high growth, physiological, yield and agronomic parameters in Jasmine plants.


Keywords: Jasmine, moisture depletion percentage, irrigation frequency and flower yield
