Abstract: Groundnut variety Tissa (Arachis hypogea L.), Sunflower variety Terkey (Helianthus annus L.) and Sesame variety MI3 (Sesamum indicum L.) are sensitive to both excessive and deficit water which leads to decrease yield. We studied the growth and reproduction of above oil crops due to 10 day water stress at different growth stages; vegetative (T2), flowering (T3) and at maturity (T4). The study consisted with a control (T1), with daily water supply throughout all growth stages. Experiments were arranged in Complete Randomized Design (CRD) with five replicates and the experiment was repeated two times.
