Fertilizer is costlier input in agriculture hence suitable type of fertilizer and its efficient use is essential. The liquid fertilizer available in the market are 5 to 6 times costlier than conventional straight fertilizer so attempts needs to be made to explore possibility of using water–soluble straight fertilizer for crop through drip. It is also essential to study the effect of varying levels of fertilizer on crop growth and nutrient uptake under fertigation and planning of efficient fertigation schedule depending on its growth stages. For uniform and efficient application of water and fertilizers, the drip system should have high efficiency and better performance in terms of emission uniformity and water distribution. Water, fertilizer and energy can be saved when irrigation uniformity is improved.
