Yield, water use efficiency and economics of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) as influenced by drip irrigation scheduling and nitrogen levels
Author(s): Barkha, AS Bhanvadia and SN Dholiya
A field experiment was conducted at the Regional Research Station, Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat during rabi season of 2015-16. The experiment comprised of eight treatment combinations with four irrigation schedules by drip (0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 ADPEF and conventional method) and two levels of nitrogen (100% and 75% RDN). The field experiment was laid out in a split plot design with four replications. Grain and straw yields were significantly higher in irrigation scheduled at 1.0 ADPEF over rest of the treatments but it was at par with 0.8 ADPEF. Water use efficiency was highest under irrigation schedule of 0.8 ADPEF. Highest net realization and BCR were obtained with 1.0 ADPEF closely followed by treatment 0.8 ADPEF. Non-significant influence of nitrogen levels was found on yields. Higher water use efficiency, net realization and BCR were obtained with 100% RDN.
