In search of new innovations for saving irrigation water, fruit yield response and N-fertiliser recovery of greenhouse grown spring-planted tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill., cv. F1 Fantastic) were assessed as influenced by deficit irrigation, imposed using either conventional deficit irrigation (DI) or partial root drying (PRD). Three irrigation treatments were tested: (1) FULL, control treatment where the full amount of irrigation water, which was measured using Class-A pan evaporation data, was applied uniformly on the two halves of plant-root zone; (2) PRD, 50% deficit irrigation in which wetted and partially dry halves of the root-zone were interchanged every irrigation; (3) DI, conventional deficit irrigation maintained at 50% deficit, compared to FULL irrigation, with water applied on the both halves of the root-zone. During a growth period of 153 days, the highest fruit yield of 145.4 t ha-1 was measured under FULL irrigation treatment, which was followed by PRD and DI treatments with statistically lower (P
