To obtain maximum yields of barley in the San Joaquin Valley, a normal (12? to 14?) pre-irrigation and at least one supplemental crop irrigation are required, according to these studies. When a heavy pre-irrigation is applied, the soil may be wetted below the potential rooting depth of the barley, in which case the moisture would not be available to the plants.
