Improving irrigation - water-use and yield of cotton by different agro-techniques under cotton based cropping pattern



Improving irrigation - water-use and yield of cotton by different agro-techniques under cotton based cropping pattern



National seminar on water management the key to developing agriculture: 634-651



Some of the most important parameters influencing water use in cotton cultivation are climate, irrigation, drainage, fertilizers, crop rotation and sowing techniques. The most important climatic factors are temp. and rainfall. The crop should not suffer from water shortage during the peak of the flowering period. Water use efficiency increased when the optimum amount of water was applied and decreased thereafter.
