The influence of antitranspirants (kaolin, methanol and phenyl mercuric acetate) on the growth, yield, relative growth rate (RGR), assimilate transport capacity (HI), consumptive use of water, water use efficiency (WUE), thermal unit accumulation and heat use efficiency (HUE) of summer moong (Vigna radiata) cv. Pusa vasaki was studied during February-May 2004, in Kukma, Bhuj, Gujarat, India. Foliar spray of all the antitranspirants had beneficial effect on the parameters studied. The favourable effects were due to better RGR, HI, HUE and WUE. The response pattern of various chemicals studied was in the order of kaolin > methanol > phenyl mercuric acetate.
