Field experiments were conducted during the rabi seasons of 1994/95 and 1995/96 at Ludhiana, Punjab, India, to evaluate the growth, yield and water use efficiency (WUE) of wheat cv. WH-542 grown under a line source sprinkler with 4 different irrigation rates.The crops received a total irrigation of 103.4, 140.4, 159.8 and 221.3 mm in 1994/95 and 89.2, 154.9, 190.2 and 232.4 mm in 1995/96. Total water use, dry matter accumulation, and straw and grain yields increased with increasing irrigation level in both years. However, WUE for grain and straw yields were highest under moderate irrigation levels.
