Author(s): Dr. G Ramesh, Dr. Ch Varaprasada Rao and Dr. GMV Prasada Rao
Abstract: An on-farm demonstration was conducted during rabi 2017-18 and 2018-19 at Medaramitla of Korisapadu mandal and Chandaluru of J.Pangaluru mandal to study the effect of drip irrigation on growth and yield of chickpea in medium and deep black soils of Prakasam district of Andhra Pradesh. The test treatments were drip irrigation at 30DAS and 50DAS in contrast to farmers practice (rain fed) The supplemental irrigation with drip at 30DAS and 50DAS recorded higher seed yield (2312 kg ha-1) by 46.14 per cent compared to farmers practice (1582 kg ha-1). In improved technology increased yields at both villages compared to farmers practice. Irrigation with drip system recorded higher net returns (Rs.53842) and B: C ratio (1:2.24) compared to farmers practice in both villages.
