Abstract:
The Crop Water Stress Index (CWSI) was used to schedule irrigations on Pima S-6 cotton on 12 four-acre furrow-irrigated test plots in Coolidge and 20 drip- irrigated test plots at the Campus Agricultural Center in Tucson. Scheduling irrigations between 0.30 and 0.50 CWSI units resulted in highest lint production and plant water use efficiency at both locations.
