A field experiment was conducted at college farm, college of Agriculture, PJTSAU, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, Telangana, during rabi 2016-17 to evaluate effect of irrigation treatments on growth, yield parameters yield and economics of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) in Semi-Arid region of Telangana, India. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block design with three replications and ten treatments, comprising varied levels of irrigation scheduled in different stages of crop growth in both drip and surface method of irrigation. Quinoa is the newly introduced crop to Indian subcontinent its performance under variable irrigation water at various growth stages was evaluated. Results revealed that growth parameters like plant height, number of branches at different stages of crop and yield attributes i.e. main panicle length, number of panicles plant-1, test weight (1000-grain weight), grain yield, stalk yield and harvest index were significantly higher with 1.0 Epan throughout cropping period (T2) followed by mild stress treatment at flowering stage (T8) under drip irrigated treatment and 1.0 IW: CPE in surface method of irrigation (T10). The highest grain yield and stalk yield was recorded with 1.0 Epan throughout cropping period (T2). Higher cost of cultivation, gross and net return was recorded in T2 followed by T8
