Abstract: Drip irrigation has been of interest in regions where water is scarce or expensive (e.g. Israel and Arizona). In Australia the water supply is very variable, while the cost of water, though cheap by some standards, could become more expensive in the future. Claims by distributors and agents of improved efficiency of irrigation and heavier yields of cotton due to drip irrigation in 1981-82 and 1983-84 had not been validated for Australian conditions. This created the need for an objective assessment of drip irrigation for cotton. This project compares two types of drip irrigation and standard furrow irrigation in a randomized and replicated experiment.
