Abstract

Cotton plants require sufficient water availability, especially during germination and growth and dry conditions at harvest. In drip irrigation, irrigation can be adjusted to the water needs of each type of plant that varies depending on the growth phase and the type of plant. The study aims to determine the growth and production of cotton plants that use drip irrigation systems in two different planting seasons. The study was conducted for 2 (two) consecutive years, the first study: planting using drip irrigation was carried out in August 2017 and continued with the second planting in May 2018. The research was conducted in Turucinnae Village, Lamuru District, Bone Regency, South Sulawesi Province. The research was carried out in the form of field experiments in the form of a demonstration plot using an experimental design and analysis carried out to find out and explain the implementation of drip irrigation in two different planting seasons.

Vegetative growth of cotton plants that use drip irrigation in 2017 provides better results than in 2018 seen from plant height and number of leaves, while the production of cotton plants using drip irrigation in 2017 is greater than that planted in 2018 in terms of the number of bolls. Formed and weight of cotton produced.
