Even in those parts of the country where irrigation facilities exist, crop production can be maximized by better scheduling of irrigation. Scarce water resources can be economically used by providing water to crops when it is known to be most beneficial. For this, precise water requirements of crop at various growth stages are being studied through field experiments and regular lysimeter measurements of evapotranspiration
