A study was conducted during the winter season of 1996-97 and 1997-98 at the Agricultural Research Station, Mandor, Rajasthan, India to study the effects of planting date, irrigation and weed control measure on the yield and water use efficiency of cumin (C. cyminum cv. RZ 19). Cumin planted on 15 November gave significantly higher seed yield (834 kg/ha) than planting on 30 November. An irrigation schedule of 4 irrigations resulted in significantly higher seed yield (889 kg/ha) than 3 irrigations when planting was conducted on 15 November. However, under late sowing conditions (30 November), 3 irrigations resulted in a seed yield which was statistically on a par (748 kg/ha) with the schedule of 4 irrigations. Fluchloralin at 1.0 kg/ha as pre-plant incorporation resulted in a significantly higher seed yield (814 kg/ha) over weedy control and hand weeding. However, the highest seed yield (865 kg/ha) was recorded for the weed-free treatment. The greatest water use efficiency (5.83 kg/ha-mm) was obtained with planting on 15 November under weed-free conditions (7.86 kg/ha-mm), followed by fluchloralin at 1.0 kg/ha. A marginal increase in water use efficiency was obtained under 3 irrigations in both years.
