Abstract:

Land and water resources are finite and their management is crucial for improving food security in the country. Adoption of drip irrigation proved to be technically feasible and helps in saving significant amount of water and increase the quality and quantity of produce. Baby corn is a unique cereal with high nutritional value. The demand for baby corn is rapidly increasing in urban areas in India. An experiment was conducted with three replications. Two irrigation intervals, namely, daily and alternate day irrigation as the main treatments and different irrigation amounts, 1ETc, 0.8ETc and 0.6ETc were used. The results revealed that plant height (2.0m), root length (14.9cm), root width (8.1cm) found to be highest in 1.0ETc daily irrigation treatment. Similarly, no. of baby corns (461), weight of ten cobs with and without husk (623gms and 318gms) was also high for 1.0ETc daily irrigation treatment. Overall, the baby corn yield was observed to be the best in 1.0 ETc daily irrigation
