Abstract
A two year field study was conducted during rabi seasons of 2013–14 and 2014–15 to evaluate the impact of two micro-irrigation methods viz. drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation and four irrigation schedules CPE: IWratio 0.6, 0.8, 1 and 1.2 on yield and economics of wheat cultivation. The effect of drip irrigation with 0.6 CPE: IW appeared to be most favorable compared to all other treatments and recommended surface irrigation in terms of both yield and economics of wheat. The results also suggest that drip irrigation was the optimum and sustainable strategy to achieve higher yield and income and also to improve water saving on sandy clay soil.
