The present study aimed to find out the crop water and irrigation water requirement for mustard crop over three locations of Chhattisgarh state to represent three agro climatic zones. Results revealed that highest crop water requirement (373 mm) and irrigation requirement (333 mm) is noticed at Raipur which is representing the Chhattisgarh Plain zone and lowest at Ambikapur (328 mm and 283 mm) of Northern Hill zone. Stage-wise information of irrigation water requirement for mustard crop would help judicious utilisation of available water and may reduce the over utilisation of ground water source.
