A field experiment was conducted from 1997/98 to 1999/2000 in Uttar Pradesh, India, to determine the effective utilization of harvested water for garden pea irrigation and its effect on yield and nutrient uptake by garden pea in maize-based intercropping system. The treatments comprised sole maize, maize + cowpea and maize + okra. Irrigation was applied at pre-flowering and pre-pod formation stages. Maize + cowpea intercropping gave the highest number of pods per plant, pod weight per plant, green pod yield, straw yield, total N uptake, total P uptake, total K uptake and water use efficiency of garden pea. Similar results were obtained with 2 irrigation schedules, however, water use efficiency of garden pea was highest with single irrigation while consumptive use efficiency of garden pea was highest with sole maize and two irrigation schedules.
