A field experiment was conducted in Andhra Pradesh, India, during the 1993 and 1994 rabi season (November-March) to study the effect of irrigation methods on the yield and yield components of groundnut cv. ICGS 11 in red sandy loam soil. Irrigations were scheduled at IW/CPE ratio of 0.8 and 50 mm water depth and applied in 4 different methods, namely check basin, border strip, furrow method and farmer's method. The highest number of pods per m2 (396), shelling percentage (68), pod yield (2.16 t/ha), haulm yield (2.39) and water use efficiency (4.8 kg/mm water) was obtained using the furrow method while the border strip method gave the highest oil content (47.3%) and water applied (475 mm).
