The field experiment was conducted at G.B.P.A.U. and T., Pantnagar to study the comparative effect of furrow and microsprinkler irrigation on biometric development and yield components of cauliflower. The plant height recorded in surface irrigation (FI) and microsprinkler irrigation (MI) was 42.6 and 53.1 cm., respectively. The number of leaves recorded in FI and MI were 12.88 and 16.25 and the duration of curd initiation 78 and 73, respectively. The yield of cauliflower was 31.7 and 25.51 tonne/ha in MI and FI respectively with an increase of 24.31% in MI over FI. The diameter, weight and volume of curd were also higher in MI than SI. Water use efficiency obtained in MI and FI were 1.43 and 0.79 tonne/ha-cm., respectively. Water saving, 31.2% over FI, was recorded in MI.
