A field experiment was conducted during the 2000/01 rabi season in Akola, Maharashtra, India, to study the effect of irrigation and cycocel (CCC) levels on the growth and yield attributes of mustard (Brassica juncea cv. Pusa Bold). The treatments comprised: 5 irrigation levels, i.e. 100 (I1), 150 (I2), 200 (I3), 250 mm CPE (I4) and irrigations during presowing, vegetative, branching, 50% flowering, siliquae formation and seed filling stages (I5), and 3 levels of cycocel, i.e. control (C0), one spray at 30 DAS (C1), and two sprays at 30 and 45 DAS (C2). The highest seed yield was recorded in treatment I5, however it was at par with treatment I1 (five irrigations given as presowing and at 100 mm CPE). Water use efficiency was highest in treatment I4 (two irrigations given as presowing and at 250 mm CPE), while it was lowest in I5 treatment. The highest consumptive use, absolute and relative water use rates were recorded in I5, while the lowest values were recorded in I4.
