The field experiments were conducted during the two consecutive rabi seasons 2014-15 and 2015-16 to study the influence of drip irrigation on plant growth and yield parameters of garlic (cv. G-282) in agro-climatic conditions of Malwa plateau of Madhya Pradesh. The experiment was laid out in a factorial randomized block design with nine treatment combinations consisting of three irrigation levels and three fertilizer levels having three replications and one control plot treatment of flood irrigation in border strip. Three irrigation levels (treatments) were 60% CPE, 80% CPE and 100% CPE. The maximum percentage of water saving over control treatment was observed in treatment 100% CPE (64%) followed by 80% CPE (52%) and 60% CPE (40%). The irrigation levels significantly affected (P<0.05) the plant height, marketable bulb yield and gross bulb yield of garlic. However, the neck thickness was not affected by irrigation levels. Highest plant height (72.82 cm), neck thickness (0.80 cm), marketable bulb yield (114.85 q/ha) and gross bulb yield (126.24 q/ha) was recorded in treatment 100% CPE.

Key words: Drip Irrigation, Plant height, Neck thickness, Marketable bulb yield, Gross bulb yield
