The successful production of field crops in arid regions is entirely dependent on the use of a sound irrigation program based on a knowledge of the effect of soil-moisture stress on the plant at different stages of its development. This is particularly critical when the crop is grown during that period of the year when there is no rainfall, or when rainfall anticipated during the growing season is not forthcoming.
