A study was conducted in Hisar, Haryana, India during 1999/2000 and 2000/2001 to determine the effect of Eucalyptus shade on the seasonal moisture content, moisture extraction pattern, crop water use, water use efficiency, and yield of wheat. The test crop was subjected to 4 levels of shade of Eucalyptus, viz., S6 (0-6 m), S12 (6-12 m), S18 (12-18 m) and S24 (18-24 m). It was observed that S24 provided maximum values of growth, radiation and soil water use of wheat as well as on the yield and yield attributes of wheat. On the contrary, minimum shade (S6) resulted in minimum values for all the mentioned parameters.
