Chilli crop is very sensitive to excess water but to some extent it can tolerate drought. Majority of crops will give more than double the yield under irrigation over rainfed crop. Adoption of proper water management practices leads not only saving valuable water but also yield more per unit quantity or water supplied. Heavy soils or in heavy rainfall areas proper drainage should be provided to withdraw excess water.
