Soil Moisture Tension, Sugarcane Stalk Elongation, and Irrigation Interval Control1

  1. Frank E. Robinson2

Synopsis

Synopsis

Elongation rate declined as soil moisture tension approached 2 bars at the 12-inch depth. However, when the soil moisture tension in any cycle did not exceed 2 bars an increased rate of elongation following irrigation compensated for the decrease in rate prior to irrigation, and no real reduction in the average growth rate occurred. After the 2-bar stress was exceeded at the 12-inch depth a real reduction in the average growth rate occurred.
