Abstract

Water management has become the most indispensable factor for augmenting the crop productivity especially in legume crops because of their high susceptibility to both water stress and water logging at various growth stages. This warrants the need for adoption of suitable irrigation method which creates a favourable soil moisture environment for maximizing yield by conserving moisture, reducing weed growth and improving crop growth and yield promotional factors. In the present day of water scarcity, optimum method of irrigation plays a vital role in economizing irrigation water and enhancing crop yield. Many research findings also confirm considerable saving in irrigation water through adoption of proper irrigation layout. The response of legume crops to different irrigation layouts including micro irrigation is reviewed.
