Abstract: Studies were conducted to evaluate the performance of drip irrigation and fertigation system on the yields of sweet maize and telfairia occidentalis. Three treatments: watering once per week (6.38 litres) (WI), twice (11.66 litres) (W2) and thrice (17.16 litres) (W3) were applied to sweet maize. Four treatments: 12 litres (WI), 15.76 litres (W2), 17.0 litres (W3), 22.05 litres (W4) and four fertigation levels: 54.6kg/ha (F1); 68.06kg/ha (F2); 81.92kg/ha (F3) and 95.39kg/ha (F4) were applied to telfairia occidentalis. Growth and yield of the crops were monitored. W2 was optimum for sweet maize cultivation while (F2W2) was recommended for telfairia occidentalis.
