Groundnut cv. Smriti was intercropped with pigeon pea cv. UPAS-120, black gram cv. T-9, green gram cv. K-851 and cowpea cv. Pusa Kamal in a field experiment conducted in Orissa, India during the kharif seasons of 2000-01 to determine and compare the water use efficiency of intercropped legumes with sole cropped rice. The highest rice equivalent yield was obtained from groundnut + pigeon pea intercropping (6656 and 7023 kg/ha in 2000 and 20001, respectively). Similarly, rainwater use efficiency was recorded in groundnut + pigeon pea intercropping. The results of the study indicate the efficiency of low water-requiring or deep rooted crops such as pigeon pea, groundnut, black gram, green gram and cowpea as substitute for rice sole cropping.
