Field experiment on rajma was conducted during rabi 2001-2002 at Agriculture College Farm, Nagpur, Maharashtra, India, to study the effect of different methods of irrigation and frequency of irrigation on growth and yield of rajma (Phaseolus vulgaris). The highest grain and straw yield (15.76 and 27.30 q ha-1) was obtained with sara method of irrigation over ridges and furrows, ridges and furrows with irrigation at alternate furrows and BBF-3 rows method of irrigation. The highest grain and straw yield was obtained with water stress of 50% DASM than 75% DASM. The water use efficiency was higher in sara method of irrigation followed by ridges and furrows. The total water requirements of the crop can be reduced by delaying irrigation upto 75% soil moisture depletion without affecting the yield of rajma.
