Abstract:
Lint yield response to varied Management Allowed Depletion Levels (MADL), and consumptive water use rates were determined for four upland cotton varieties (D&PL 5415, D&PL NuCotn 33B, D&PL 5816, and STV 474) at the Maricopa Agricultural Center. Four irrigation treatments based on MADL of 35% (Very Wet), 50% (Wet), 75% (Medium) and 90% (Dry) of available moisture were used to schedule irrigations after May 16. The Very Wet and Wet treatments showed statistically similar yields which were much greater than the Medium and Dry treatments. Irrigation return intervals of six to ten days from early June thru late July appeared to provide the greatest lint yields. Consumptive water use appears to reach its maximum during the peak bloom period of the fruiting cycle. Following peak bloom, water use gradually diminishes.
