Effect of different irrigation methods and levels on greenhouse muskmelon

, : Effect of different irrigation methods and levels on greenhouse muskmelon. Acta Horticulturae (58): 129-135

In trials in a heated plastic greenhouse 4 irrigation levels, equivalent to totals of 216, 297, 378 and 459 mm water over the growing season (March-July) were compared. Water was given whenever the accumulated maximum evapotranspiration reached 30 mm. Trickle irrigation resulted in higher yields than furrow irrigation, especially at low irrigation levels.
