Abstract: The present field experiment was conducted to study the effect of micro-irrigation based on evaporation depletion with reduced doses of NPK applied through fertigation on fruit yield, profitability and water use efficiency of acid lime at AICRP on Tropical Fruits, Dr. PDKV, Akola during 2012-13 and 2013-14. The study was conducted in FRBD comprised of three levels of micro-irrigation (I1-100, I2-90 and I3-80 % Evp) and three levels of fertigation (F1-100, F2-80 and F3-60 % RDF) in nine treatment combinations replicated thrice.
The pooled results revealed that irrigation level I2 and fertigation level F1 produced significantly maximum fruits in hasta bahar followed by the irrigation level I3 and fertigation level F2 which were found to be at par with each other. However, significantly maximum fruit yield of annual yield was recorded under the irrigation level I1 and fertigation level F1 which were at par with their respective lower level i.e. I2 and F2. The irrigation level I2 and fertigation level F3 recorded maximum N use efficiency and partial; factor productivity followed by I3 and F2 which were on par with each other.
