A field experiment was conducted in Hisar, Haryana, India, on sandy soil during the rabi season of 2002-03 and 2003-04 to study the effects of moisture regimes (rainfed, terminal moisture stress, and normal irrigated control) on the performance of 4 chickpea genotypes (H 96-99, H 99-270, H 99-278 and H 00-53). The greatest crop water use and lowest water use efficiency were observed in the control. Lower leaf water potential was recorded under rainfed environment. The lowest seed yield was registered for the rainfed treatment (reduction of 34 and 39% over the terminal drought treatment and normal irrigated control, respectively). H 99-270 gave the highest seed yield in both years, but was on a par with H 00-53 during the first year. H 99-278 recorded the lowest seed yield.
