Abstract:
Agriculture is the largest consumer of fresh water resources, thus the scope of enhancing water productivity in agriculture is taken to be the priority area of research. The right amount and frequency of irrigation is essential for optimum use of limited water resources for crop production as well as management. The lower lateral spacing gave higher net return and benefit-cost ratio as compared to higher lateral spacing. The proper irrigation frequency gives better production. The surface drip irrigation gave lower production as compared to sub surface drip irrigation. The seasonal water applied and marketable flower yield, gross return, net return and benefit-cost ratio exhibited quadratic relationship which can be used for optimising economic return of broccoli under variable irrigation and lateral spacing. The findings of different study revealed that drip irrigation system is profitable for broccoli production inspite of high initial investment.
