Effect of different irrigation regimes on yield and quality of two melon cultivars (Cucumis melo L.)



Effect of different irrigation regimes on yield and quality of two melon cultivars (Cucumis melo L.)



Bioagro 12(1): 25-30



In a trial carried out in Managas State, Venezuela, in March-June 1997, melon plants of the cultivars Edisto and Honey Dew were subjected to 4 drip-irrigation regimes (mean water amounts of 1.33, 4.0, 2.0 and 2.67 mm/day) by combining different watering times and intervals. The highest yield (28 146 kg/ha) was obtained with Edisto in the 1.33-mm/day treatment, although Honey Dew produced larger fruits than Edisto (averaging 16.75 cm long and 14.08 cm thick over all irrigation treatments).
