Abstract

Judicious use of irrigation water and fertilizers to prevent leaching, volatilization losses of nutrients, optimization and precise utilization of irrigation water near to root zone is required in the present scenario due to depletion and over-exploitation of natural resources. Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) has recommended drip fertigation schedule for kinnow, guava and strawberry to enhance fruit quality and production. Application of fertilizers with drip irrigation system saves about 20 % of fertilizers and 20-35% of irrigation water in different fruit crops. Sustainable production has been realized through the adaptation of drip and fertigation to
fruit crops.
