A field study was conducted on sandy loam soil during summer seasons of 2003 and 2004 to
investigate the effect of drip fertigation on moisture extraction pattern and yield of bhendi. The
experiment consisted of 12 treatments which comprised three levels of drip irrigation (0, 0.50,
0.75 and 1.00 Epan) with three fertigation levels (60, 90 and 120 kg Nha-1), furrow irrigation
with120 kg Nha-1, family drip system with120 kg Nha-1 and fertigation control (drip irrigation at
1.00 Epan + 0 kg N ha-1) .The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three
replications. The results of the study revealed that highest pod yield was recorded through drip
fertigation with 120 kg Nha-1 and irrigation at 1.00 Epan. Furrow irrigated crop recorded 54 %
and 57 % lower yield than crop irrigated through drip at 1.00 Epan and fertigated with 120 kg
Nha-1 during 2003 and 2004 respectively. Drip fertigated crop has extracted higher moisture (40-
48%) from top 0-15 cm soil depth than furrow irrigated crop (33-34%).
