The experiment was conducted at Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station Ullal with an objective to study the influence of drip irrigation on reproductive and yield parameters of cashew crop. Providing drip irrigation recorded significantly highest number of flowering shoots (4.62), hermaphrodite flowers per panicle (12.87), panicles per m2 (13.50), florets per inflorescence (9.85), Nuts per panicle (6.65), test weight (7.62 g) and nut yield per tree (14.01 kg). Among the varieties, Ullal-1 has recorded maximum number of flowering shoots (4.50), hermaphrodite flowers per panicle (12.80), panicles per m2 (14.10), florets per inflorescence (10.80), nuts per panicle (6.38) and nut yield per tree (15.30 kg).
