An experiment was conducted during kharif seasons of 2001 and 2003 at MAU, Parbhani to study response of hybrid cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) to different levels of drip irrigation on Vertisol. The seed cotton yield under drip irrigation based on ETc did not differ but was found significantly superior over furrow irrigation system. The seed cotton yield under drip irrigation was higher to the tune of 39 per cent over ridges and furrow irrigation. The mean consumptive use of water and WUE in drip irrigation was more as compared to ridges and furrow irrigation.
