Irrigation and crop growth. Farm crops: yield responses and limiting soil water deficits



Irrigation and crop growth. Farm crops: yield responses and limiting soil water deficits



UK, Rothamsted Experimental Station: Rothamsted Experimental Station: Report for 1978 Part 1: 192-193



The response of 5 crops to irrigation in 1964-76 at (a) Rothamsted were compared with those in 1951-68 at (b) Woburn in terms of limiting soil moisture deficit (Dl) and the incremental gain (k) in crop yield/unit of applied water. Seed yield of field beans at (a) increased by 10% or more in response to irrigation in only 3 out of 6 yr. Dl were 80 mm and <30 mm and max. k values 0.006 and 0.014 t seed DM/ha mm at (a) and (b), resp.
