A field experiment on response of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) to protective irrigation at different critical growth stages was conducted during 2003-2004, 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 at the Department of Agronomy, MAU, Parbhani. The results revealed that scheduling of protective irrigation to cotton either at 0.8 IW/CPE ratio (75 mm CPE) or at three critical growth stages i. e. at square formation+flowering+boll development was found beneficial for higher seed cotton yield, water use efficiency and economic returns.
