Abstract:

The potato is a winter season crop which requires sufficient precipitation during the later crop growth stages. It prefers a loamy textured soil for highest tuber yield due to its high storage capacity, good drainage and other favorable soil characteristics. The potato is very specific in its moisture needs which are met either from the reserve of conserved water in the soil or supplied through irrigation or both. The shortage of water is usually one of the most important constraints for higher yield and lack of adequate availability of water can adversely affect the yield and quality of the crop. Control of soil moisture as an important factor in potato production because “potato plants require a high degree of soil aeration” or because “even temporary dryness” may reduce yield. Therefore, proper study is required to carry out the best water management practices for better water use efficiency and yield of potato.
