A field experiment was conducted during the 2002-04 winter season on sandy soil having low nitrogen, medium phosphorus and high potassium status at Hisar, Haryana, India, to study the effect of drought environments on plant water relations and productivity of chickpea genotypes. The experiment consisted of 3 environments of moisture (rainfed, terminal moisture stress and normal irrigated control) in main plots and 4 genotypes (H 96-99, H 99-270, H 99-278 and H 00-53) in subplots of split-plot design having 3 replications. Results showed that the highest consumptive use and lowest water use efficiency were observed under normal irrigated control environment. The highest and lowest values of osmotic and turgor potential were recorded under normal irrigated control and rainfed environment, respectively. Under terminal moisture stress and normal irrigated control, genotype H 99-270 recorded the highest yield. H 00-53 outyielded (1028 and 1040 kg/ha during 2002-03 and 2003-04, respectively) the other 3 genotypes under the rainfed environment. H 99-270 also recorded the highest biological yield.
