Evaluation of Irrigation Strategies for Wheat

WithKamal G. Singh, A. K. Tiwari

Economically, optimum irrigation practice under limited supplies involves reducing water use from maximizing level of yield at which marginal cost equals the value of the marginal product [1]. This requires an appropriate schedule of water application satisfying the question of how much to apply and when to apply. Therefore, this study aims at: (a) Maximum water use efficiency (WUE), (b) Maximum yields of the crop, and (c) Maximum net return to the farmer.
