A field experiment was conducted during the rabi season of 1997-98 and 1998-99 in Dharwad, Karnataka, India, to determine the effect of irrigation schedules (1.0, 1.3, and 1.6 IW/CPE ratio) and methods of irrigation (furrow, alternate furrow, alternatively alternate furrow, and check basin) on cabbage. Irrigation at 1.6 IW/CPE ratio recorded maximum plant spread (50.79 cm), leaf area (222.57 cm2) dry matter (81.67 g/head), diameter of head (14.43 cm), number of inner leaves per head (38.98), weight of head (566.69 g) and yield of cabbage heads (33.40 t/ha) with a water use efficiency of 706.22 kg ha-1-cm. Among the methods of irrigation, furrow method of irrigation recorded maximum yield (31.28 t/ha) and yield attributes of cabbage. However, the maximum water use efficiency was found in alternatively alternate furrow method of irrigation. Based on the yield, the alternatively alternate furrow method of irrigation in cabbage was found promising compared to furrow irrigation.
