A field experiment was conducted during winter season of 1998-99 and 1999-2000 at Dharwad research farm at Tegur, Karnataka, India, to evaluate the effects of four irrigation schedules based on irrigation water:cumulative pan evaporation (IW:CPE) ratios (0.0, 0.60, 0.90 and 1.20 with an IW of 60 mm) on the productivity of two oat varieties ('JHO 822' and 'JHO 851'). Results revealed that the differences in fodder yield and N concentration of the varieties were insignificant. The crude protein yield of 'JHO 851' (6.08 q/ha) was significantly higher than that of 'JHO 822' (5.29 q/ha), while the water use efficiency of 'JHO 822' (28.6 kg-dm/ha-mm) was significantly higher than that of 'JHO 851' (20.3 kg-dm/ha-mm). The fodder yield and water use efficiency significantly increased with increasing IW:CPE ratio from 0.0 to 0.9.
