A field experiment was conducted during summer 2001 in Rahuri (Maharashtra, India) to investigate the effect of different cumulative pan evaporation (CPE) levels, i.e. 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 mm, on the yield of onion irrigated through the micro sprinkler system. The treatments scheduled at the lowest CPE (20 mm) was the best, recording the highest yield after drying (442.05 q/ha) and water use efficiency (955.16 kg/ha-cm), which was statistically superior over all the other treatments. The consumptive use of water was highest (462.80 mm) at 20 mm CPE and lowest (432.50 mm) at 60 mm CPE.
