The experiment was conducted at in Maize Research Station, Agricultural Research Institute, Rajendra nagar, Hyderabad during rabi 2011-2012. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with factorial concept and replicated thrice with twenty treatment combinations consisting of 5 irrigation treatments and 4 nitrogen applications and results showed that, Scheduling of drip irrigation at 100% E pan produced higher growth, yield attributes and in turn green cob yield (12.23 t ha-1) and fodder yield of (28.93 t ha-1) of sweet corn which was 58 % higher green cob yield over that obtained with surface irrigation at 1.0 IW/CPE. Application of N @ 200 kg ha-1 through fertigation achieved maximum green cob yield (11.65 t ha-1) and fodder yield (25.71 t ha-1).
