A field experiment was conducted in Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat, India, during the 1995/96 rabi season, loamy sand soil to observe the effect of varying irrigation levels (0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 IW/CPE ratios) under varying N (60, 90 and 120 kg/ha) and P levels (30, 45 and 60 kg/ha) on yield, consumptive use of water and water use efficiency in fennel. Significant increase in seed yield was recorded up to 0.80 IW/CPE ratio, whereas consumptive use of water increased significantly up to 1.0 IW/CPE ratio. Water use efficiency and water expense efficiency were maximum under 0.8 IW/CPE ratio. Seed yield and consumptive use of water increased with increase in N levels, but significant increase was observed up to 90 kg N/ha. Maximum water use efficiency and water expense efficiency were obtained with 120 kg N/ha. The application of P was unable to produce any remarkable effect on yield and consumptive use of water.
