A field experiment was conducted during the 2004 rainy (kharif) season on a sandy loam soil at the Research Farm, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, India, to study the effect of varying nitrogen levels on grain yield, water use and water use efficiency (WUE) of some pearl millet hybrids (HHB 67, HHB 67-2/HHB 67 improved and HHB 68) under limited water supply. The pearl millet hybrid HHB 67-2/HHB 67 improved gave significantly higher grain yield (3683 kg/ha) and higher seasonal water use (248.2 mm) than the rest of the hybrids. Hybrid HHB 68 being at par with HHB 67-2/HHB 67 improved recorded markedly higher WUE than the rest. Application of 100 kg N/ha, being at par with 80 kg N/ha, resulted in higher grain yield and water use than rest of the nitrogen levels.
