Abstract:
Maize has become a staple food in many countries of the world, with the total production of maize surpassing that of wheat or rice. The efficient use of water by modern irrigation systems is becoming immensely important in arid and semi-arid parts of the country with limited water resources. Drip-irrigation has increasingly applied in maize (Zea mays L.) production in sub-humid regions also. It is critical to quantify irrigation requirements during different growth stages of maize under diverse climatic conditions. Maize is one of the most versatile emerging crops having wider adaptability under varied agro-climatic conditions in different parts of the world. Globally, maize is known as the queen of cereals because it has the highest genetic yield potential among different cereal crops. It is cultivated in many countries having a wider diversity of soil, climate, biodiversity, and management practices.
