Neutral current single pi0 production induced by neutrinos with a mean energy of 1.3 GeV is measured at a 1000 ton water Cherenkov detector as a near detector of the K2K long baseline neutrino experiment. The cross section for this process relative to the total charged current cross section is measured to be 0.064 +- 0.001 (stat.) +- 0.007 (sys.). The momentum distribution of produced pi0s is measured and is found to be in good agreement with an expectation from the present knowledge of the neutrino cross sections.
Ratio of single PI0 NC cross section to the total CC cross section. For reference the total CC cross section is calculated to be 1.1 x 10**-38 CM**2/nucleon averaged over the K2K neutrino beam energy.
