A field experiment was conducted during the summer seasons of 2001, 2002 and 2003, in Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat, India, to study the effects of irrigation scheduling (0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 IW:CPE ratios) and fertilizer doses (10 N kg + 20 kg P/ha, 20 kg N + 40 kg P/ha, and 30 kg N + 60 kg P/ha) on the yield of summer clusterbean. Irrigation at 0.8 and 0.6 IW:CPE ratio recorded almost similar seed yield (1238 and 1219 kg/ha, respectively), which was higher than that at 0.4 IW:CPE ratio. The highest straw yield (2848 kg/ha) was obtained when irrigation was applied at 0.8 IW:CPE ratio. Irrigation at 0.6 IW:CPE ratio recorded the highest net return (Rs. 15 998/ha) and benefit:cost ratio (BCR) (2.00), but it recorded water expense efficiency second only to that obtained at 0.4 IW:CPE ratio. Application of 30 kg N + 60 kg P/ha recorded the highest seed and straw yields (1206 and 2598 kg/ha, respectively), which were at par with those obtained with 20 kg N + 40 kg P/ha (1165 and 2499 kg/ha). The highest net return (Rs. 15 353/ha) was recorded with the application of 30 kg N + 60 kg P/ha, but the highest BCR (1.87) was obtained with 20 kg N + 40 kg P/ha.
