A field experiment was conducted on light textured soil at Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India during rabi season of 1994-95 and 1995-96 to study the effect of 4 cropping systems (barley pure, safflower pure, barley+safflower-6:1 and barley+safflower-9:1) and 3 nitrogen levels (0, 20 and 40 kg.ha-) on grain yield, total water use and water use efficiency under rainfed condition. Safflower pure recorded the highest grain yield (26.66 g.ha-1), water use efficiency (12.32 kg grain ha-1 mm-1), net return (Rs. 9443 ha-1) and cost:benefit ratio (1:1.95) followed by barley+safflower (6:1) and the lowest under barley pure. Optimum barley equivalent grain yield (22.24 q. ha-1), total water use (242.4 mm), water use efficiency (9.77 kg grain ha-1 mm-1), net return (Rs. 2980 ha-1) and cost:benefit ratio can be obtained by applying 40 kg N ha-1.
