Agriculture is the sector that has the largest share among water users. It has become a necessity to use natural resources, especially water and soil efficiently and sustainably. For this reason, it is very important to develop irrigation programs that will allow saving of irrigation water used in agriculture and to use common drip irrigation systems which are advantageous in this regard. In recent years, the use of drip irrigation systems has become widespread in the irrigation of field crops and orchards. As in many plants, the fact that the water needs of the plants are met with irrigation practices for the cultivation of melons when rainfall is not enough causes significant increases in yield. However, in the cases where water resources are scarce and/or the costs of irrigation are high, deficit irrigation methods should be considered. In this research, the application of irrigation water at different levels with the drip irrigation method in melon cultivation is examined.
