Application of water to crops during the dry season in areas of scare water supply is very important to meet the food demand of the ever-increasing population globally. Thus, modified irrigation technique that poor resource farmers can afford and use easily was evaluated in this paper. A field experiment was conducted at the University of Ibadan Teaching and Research Farm to evaluate the performance of okra under modified bucket drip kit (BDK) and wateringcan (WC) methods of irrigation for… Expand
