Abstract

An irrigation technique utilizing crop moisture-stress symptoms as a guide to subsequent irrigations was used successfully with field corn in the San Joaquin Valley. Results compared favorably with soil-moisture data obtained from gypsum-block readings within the plots and evapotranspiration information from nearby lysimeters containing grass (tall fescue). Results indicate that the risk of crop-yield losses due to improper or late irrigations can be largely overcome by the method.
