Abstract

A microcomputer program, ACRE, calculates the number of acres of field and row crops to plant, given a limited water supply. Inputs include crop water balance parameters and the anticipated supply of irrigation water. This program is useful for determining how many acres to plant when the goal is to avoid the kind of water stress that impairs marketable production of a crop.
