Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the 2002 summer season in Hisar, Haryana, India, to assess the effect of irrigation schedule on yield, water use and water use efficiency of pearl millet hybrid HHB 94. The treatments comprised: irrigation at tillering, flowering and milking stages (I1); irrigation at tillering and flowering stages (I2); irrigation at tillering and milking stages (I3); irrigation at flowering and milking stages (I4); irrigation at tillering stage (I5); irrigation at flowering stage (I6); and irrigation at milking stage. I1 gave the highest grain yield, stover yield, seasonal consumptive water use and water use efficiency.
