Abstract

Studies on Panoche clay loam soil showed the effectiveness of irrigation water and nitrogen fertilization for cotton to be highly interdependent. A lint yield equation was calculated to determine the combination of irrigation water and nitrogen that would minimize costs for specific yield levels and input cost conditions.
