Established threshold plant water potential causing abscission of bolls in cotton

1976 -78

Threshold plant water potentials that limit growth and abscission of leaves, flowers and bolls in cotton are established. Although the process of natural abscission is not fully understood investigation in to the causes of premature boll shedding in cotton have shown the involvement of diverse factors relating to plant nutrition, insect damage, environmental conditions including soil moisture, plant water status, temperature etc. It has been found that in general decrease in leaf water potential in cotton below -15 bar causes the shedding of squares, flowers and premature bolls. Similarly, it also cause the change in certain biochemical activities in cotton plant such as increase in proline content, decrease in nitrate reductase activity and accumulation of nitrites in plant

Soil plant water relations and growth processes

1978 ? 2000

Soil water plant relations under constraints of water availability area studied in major crops such as cotton, sorghum, wheat, safflower etc. It appears from the literature that scheduling of irrigation to various crops has been mostly based and evaluated on the soil water status. There is little research conducted, particularly in India on the threshold plants water status (plant water potential) though the growth is controlled directly by water deficits in plant and only indirectly by soil water deficits and atmospheric stress. Therefore, the relationship between soil water potential and plant water potential in cotton, rabi sorghum, wheat safflower and sunflower under differential moisture regimes as well as fertilizer levels have been worked out which is highly useful from irrigation scheduling and increasing water use efficiency point to view

?  Biochemical changes in cotton

Reduction in leaf water potential beyond -1.5 MPa showed adverse effect on Nitrate Reductage Activity and nutrient uptake in cotton plant. The decrease in NRA resulted the accumulation of nitrate in plant under stressed condition. The praline content increased with the decrease in leaf water potential and it was more in CJ-73 arborium cotton as compared to H-4 cotton (Gossypium hirsutum )

?  Physiological changes in cotton

It was observed that the growth of cotton plant decreased substantially with lowering the leaf water potential and complete recovery in the growth rate did not takes place even after rewatering. The transpiration rate of cotton plant subjected to severe water stress was low. Leaf water potential was linearly related with water potential as it is explain by the equation

  • leaf = -3.363+0.977? soil for CJ - 73 cotton and
  • leaf = -8.775+0.895 ? soil for H-4 cotton. The uptake of N,P,K,Ca, and Mg was highest in regularly watered plant

?  Yield and quality of cotton fibre

It was observed that reduction in leaf water potential beyond -1.5 MPa showed adverse effect on growth, yield and quality of cotton fibre. The seed cotton yield was decrease due to the reduction of boll number and their size. Seed index and fibre quality was adversely affected when plant stress severely.

Irrigation and Changing Soil Health. Long term effect of canal irrigation (1985 to 2000) on water table fluctuation, quality of irrigation water and soil health

1985 - 2000

Jayakwadi and Purna command area are receiving irrigation since last 25-30 years. Consequently the physical and chemical properties of soil have / are changing thereby creating problems. These changes studied periodically during 198 to 2000 are observed as below :--

  1. Ground water table fluctuation

Quality of ground water and position of water table are the factor influencing success of cannel water. Even when the quality of water is good the cannel irrigation might lead to the soil salinity in these areas. The problems are mainly due to over irrigation, injudicious use of irrigation water, seepage from cannel and rise of water table etc. observations on fluctuation of water table recorded during 1985- 2000 in Jayakwadi command area showed that during 1987 to 1990 thee was rise in water table by about 50 cm annually in command area. During excess rainfall year (1989-90) water table raised upto 1.4 metre. While during normal to deficit year (1991 to 2000) it was lowered upto 4.6 m below ground level.

  1. Quality of irrigation water

There was conspicuous increase in pH, EC and SAR of ground water in command area indicating thereby a danger of Sali9nity and sodicity or irrigation water

  1. Soil properties

On comparison of the present status of physical and chemical properties of soil (recorded in 2000) with that of 1984-85, it was found that there has been a considerable increase in bulk density, decrease in infiltration rate and organic carbon and increase in pH, soluble salt content and exchangeable sodium percentage in the command area.
