Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during summer season of2003 and 2004 to study the effect of irrigation and rhizobium inoculation on yield, yield attributes and water-use efficiency of sununer groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) at the Instructional Farm (New alluvial Zone) of Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Mohanpur, Nadia, West Bengal. Irrigation at vegetative and flowering stages was found to perform better with respect to pod yield (2149 kg/ha), yield attributes and.water-use efficiency {3.52 kg/ha/mm) than other levels of irrigation. Rhizobium inoculation with Jcg-1 strain showed the maximum pod yield which was 11.16 % higher than 110 inoculation treatment.
