SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA asparagus growers operate under diverse climatic conditions and soil types, and have many questions on such problems as frequency of irrigation, rates of nitrogen fertilizer, and the total quantity of water to apply. This study was initiated to obtain information on the relationship of yield responses to various soil moisture conditions on one soil type under one set of growing conditions with the possibility of then extrapolating water requirements under different growing conditions.
