The effects of soil moisture and fertility on the crop coefficient and water use efficiency of soyabeans cv. Hampton-266A were determined in a field experiment conducted in Pakistan. The treatments comprised 12.8 (I1), 10.5 (I2) and 10.2% (I3) moisture on dry wet basis and 50:60:30 (F1) and 50:90:30 (F2) kg NPK/ha. Grain yield was highest (2.44 t/ha) with combined I1 and F2 treatments, whereas water use efficiency of the crop was highest (3.76 kg/mm) with combined I3 and F2 treatments.
