Abstract

Sorghum also called “Crop Carnal” is known for its drought resistance, but there is a scope for improving the quality as well as grain yield when it is grown under irrigated conditions. India ranks first in area under sorghum, second in production and 51st position in terms of productivity. This pathetic situation is mainly because of its cultivation in dryland conditions and improper irrigation management under irrigated conditions. So, to augment the productivity of sorghum, review of the research work related to irrigation scheduling of sorghum has been presented here for directing the future research
