Title:
Irrigation Scheduling on Barley at the Safford Ag Center, 1997
Author:

Journal:
Forage and Grain: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
An irrigation study on barley was made to determine the economical consequences of irrigating the crop when an irrigation scheduling program called for an irrigation compared to waiting 3 to 6 days for a water turn, from the ditch. The plots irrigated when the soil moisture depletion level reached 40% produced the highest yield. Yields were decreased 700 and 1000 pounds respectively for waiting 3-4 days and 6-7 days, respectively. The economics of using the pump are discussed and a chart is given to help determine a break - even point.
