In the humid part of Nigeria (South-West), agricultural production is largely rain fed and this needs to be urgently supplemented by irrigation practice if the country is to meet her food demand. Therefore, a study was carried out to ascertain the most suitable irrigation scheme to adopt under our prevailing soil and climatic conditions. Thus, the main objective of this study was to compare performance of a crop (okra) under the two notable irrigation systems; drip and sprinkler and come up with the preferred.(Download PDF) (Export to EndNotes)
