TR 8 - Models Designed to Efficiently Allocate Irrigation Water Use Based on Crop Response to Soil Moisture Stress, R.L. Anderson, D. Yaron, and R. Young, May 1977

This report examines models designed to allocate limited irrigation water to crops throughout the growing season so as to obtain the optimum return from water applied. This is a complex problem involving a great many variables including plant growth over the season, soil moisture status and weather conditions that affect evapotranspiration.
