Evaluation of Different Crop Sequences Using Drip Irrigation System

Water is one of the vital inputs for agricultural production. The availability of water is decreasing every year due to increased demand of water for agriculture, industrial and domestic’s activities. Due to the inefficient use of water in the agriculture sector, water table all over the Punjab has declined very rapidly during the last two decades. That means availability of water in crop production is becoming a constraint implying that irrigation water must be used efficiently by adopting advanced irrigation methods. Drip irrigation is one of the fastest expanding technologies in modern irrigated agriculture with great potential to achieve savings in water and fertilizer.
