The micro-sprinkler irrigation method is one of the microirrigation methods which make efficient utilization of water and hence becoming popular in the water scarcity regions like Maharashtra state in India. However, to use these methods efficiently it is essential to generate the information on irrigation scheduling for different crops using this method. With this view, the experiment was planned on irrigation scheduling for onion under micro-sprinkler method of irrigation with four treatments based on irrigation at different cumulative pan evaporation (CPE 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 mm). The results indicated the maximum yield of onion (442.05 q/ha) and better quality when irrigated by micro-sprinkler irrigation method at 20 mm CPE compared to other treatments. Therefore the irrigation of onion is scheduled at 20 mm CPE when irrigated by micro-sprinkler irrigation method.
