An experiment was conducted to fiend out the effect of land layout and optimum water requirement of safflower. The experiment was land layout in split-plot design with four replications. Among land layout in ridges and furrow method recorded significantly higher number of capitula/plant, weight of capitula/plant (g), number of seeds/capitula, number of seeds/plant, seed weight/plant (g), seed yield, biological yield and harvest index and among the depth of irrigation, 60 cm depth recorded highest values for above yield attributes and yield. In case of yield attributes and yield land layout in ridges and furrow method recorded highest number of capitula/plant, number of seeds/capitula (22.81), number of seeds/plant (449.05), seed weight/plant (20.45 g), seed yield (1579 kg/ha) and among the depth of irrigation, 60 mm depth recorded highest yield attributes and yield.

An agronomic experiment was conducted to find out the effect of land layout and optimum water requirement of safflower. The experiment was land layout in split design with four replications. Among land layouts in ridges and furrow method recorded highest number of functional leaves, leaf area/plant, number of branches/plant and highest in total dry matter /plant and LAI, in paired row planting observed that significantly higher values of these growth attributes and among the depths of irrigations 60 cm depth recorded highest values for above growth attributes. In case of yield attributes and yield land layout in ridges and furrow method recorded highest number of capitula/plant, number of seeds/capitulum (20.40), number of seeds/plant (449.05), seed weight/plant (20.45 g), seed yield (1579 kg/ha) and highest net returns Rs. 14611/ha and among the depths of irrigation, 60 mm depth recorded highest yield attributes as well as net returns (Rs. 14332/ha). It can be inferred from above data that for obtaining the maximum seed and highest net monetary returns, safflower should be sown in ridges and furrow method at 60 × 15 cm spacing with 60 mm depth of irrigation.
