Abstract

Safflower, a crop of increasing importance in California, develops the deepest root system of any annual crop yet investigated by the Department of Irrigation. Under favorable soil conditions, mature plants can completely exhaust the available soil moisture to a depth of 10 feet and can utilize most of the available moisture to a depth of 12 feet (the greatest depth sampled). There is little difference in root development in present commercial varieties.
