A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2002/03, in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, to evaluate the effects of drip irrigation (1.0, 0.8 and 0.6 E pan), with or without black polythene mulch (25 µ), in comparison to surface irrigation (1.0 IW:CPE), on cabbage cv. Golden Acre. Data were recorded for plant height, number of leaves per plant, dry matter per plant, weed dry matter per plant, number of days to heading, head diameter, head weight, yield and water use efficiency. Plants subjected to drip irrigation at 1.0 and 0.8 E pan were superior to those subjected to drip irrigation at 0.6 E pan and surface irrigation. Black polythene mulching increased the yield further while utilizing water more efficiently.
