Abstract

The present study was conducted to determine the effects of different irrigation levels (I-100: full irrigation; I-85: 15% deficit; I-70: 30% deficit; I-55: 45% deficit and I-40: 60% deficit) on yield and yield components, sugar and protein content of fresh sweet corn during the years of 2011 and 2012. Experiments were carried out in a randomized complete-block design with three replications.
