A field experiment was conducted in the kharif season of 2004 on sandy loam soil in Haryana, India to evaluate the grain yield, water use and water use efficiency of pearl millet hybrids (HHB 67, HHB 67-2/HHB 67 improved and HHB 68) under different N rates (0, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 kg N/ha) and limited water supply. HHB 67-2/HHB 67 showed higher grain yield (3683 kg/ha) and higher seasonal water use (248.2 mm) than the rest of the hybrids. Hybrid HHB 68 and HHB 67-2/HHB 67 showed high water use efficiency. N at 80 and 100 kg/ha resulted in the highest water use efficiency and grain yield.
