Abstract:
AZSCHED irrigation software was used to schedule irrigation on Aldura wheat on the Safford Agricultural Center with very good results. Irrigations were scheduled at 40%, 50% and 60% calculated soil water depletion throughout the critical part of the growing season. The plots being irrigated at 40% depletion yielded the most and had the highest water use efficiency and showed the least plant stress. Comparing data with previous experiments, it was noted that increased inputs of higher seeding rate and higher nitrogen rate also increased the water use efficiency.
