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. Now, there is a need to decrease consumption, improve management of water resources and determine the water requirements of the major crops because agriculture is the first consumer of water in India. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) CROPWAT 8.0 simulation software and the CLIMWAT 2.0 tool attached to it have been used in this research to find the crop water requirements (CWRs) and irrigation scheduling for baby corn crop. Baby corn is a unique cereal with high nutritional value. The demand for baby corn is rapidly increasing in urban areas in India. A field experiment was conducted by using a split plot design with four replications, five irrigation intervals, namely, 100 % ET, 90 % ET, 80 % ET and 70 % ET were used. The results revealed that the estimated crop evapotranspiration baby corn is 244.8 mm.
