A field experiment was conducted during the summer season of 2000 in West Bengal, India to evaluate the effects of 4 levels of irrigation and 3 levels of P on green gram cv. Pusa Baisakhi. Increase in the levels of irrigation from 0 to 3 and levels of P from 0 to 60 kg ha-1 increased the yield, nutrient uptake, gross and net return. Three irrigations (applied at branching, pre-flowering and pod development stages) recorded maximum seed yield, N, P and K uptake, gross and net returns followed by two irrigations each at branching and pre-flowering. Application of P at 60 kg ha-1 recorded the maximum seed yield, N, P and K uptake, gross and net return. The consumptive use of water was also increased with the increase in irrigation and P levels.
