A field experiment was conducted in Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India, on sandy loam soil, during 2002-04. The results showed that application of 60% water through drip irrigation recorded significantly highest yield (48.46 g/ha) compared with surface method of irrigation (31.12 g/ha). Application of 60% water through drip increased the yield by 55.71% over the control. The growth parameters like plant height, basal girth and spread was better under drip irrigated plants compared with the control. Water use efficiency and water savings were also found to be highest under drip irrigation with 60% water and lowest under basin irrigation. The net income was also found higher under 60% water through drip (Rs. 71 760) and lowest in surface method of irrigation (Rs. 39 128). Similarly B:C ratio was also recorded most economical in 60% of water through drip (1:2.85) and lowest under control (1:1.95).
