The effects of irrigation intervals (12, 24 and 36 days) on the yield and yield components of 28 rape cultivars were determined in a field experiment conducted in Egypt during 1998-2000. Significant differences in the yield and yield components were recorded due to the genotypes, irrigation intervals and interaction of both. Irrigation interval of 12 days resulted in the highest mean seed yield and yield components in 1999-2000. Cultivar L48 recorded the highest seed yield even under prolonged irrigation interval, followed by SL1. The seasonal water consumptive use was 34.34 and 34.79 in 1998-99 and 199-2000, respectively. Irrigating rape at a 12-day interval resulted in the highest water consumptive use. Water use efficiency was highest in cv. SL29 subjected to irrigation at a 24-day interval. Peak water consumption was recorded in February and March.
