      <Abstract>The field experiment was carried out at Simabandh village, Kakdwip, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal situated at 210. 58 N latitude, 880.11 E longitude, with an altitude of 1.2 m above the mean sea level. The general slope ranged between 0 to 1%, relief and was subnormal with slight to medium runoff. The selected area represents coastal saline soil with high salinity. These soils have high electrical conductivity due to high salt content. Pitcher irrigation with different combinations of sweet water and saline water was given to Chilli (Capsicum annuum var annuum) var. Pirek which was used as test crop. The yield and yield components of chilli crop revealed that yield of dry chilli was recorded at 4.27 t/ha, 4.25 t/ha, 4.20t/ha, 4.16t/ha and 2.88 t/ha respectively in the plots of pitcher pot irrigation when treated with 100% sweet water, 75% sweet water +25% saline water, 50% sweet water +50% saline water, 25% sweet water +75% saline water and 100% saline water (control) during summer season.
