Comparative studies of irrigation methods in relation to crop response was carried out in 1973-1974. Of the two methods of irrigation evaluated, zig-zag furrow method gave well marked yield responses compared to standard furrows. Theyields obtained under this method of irrigation was well marked in high moisture response crops. Another feature observed in zig-zag furrows was that the yields in different sections of the furrows are more uniform compared to standard furrows.
