Q

If I don't have enough water to fully irrigate all of my crop land should I try to spread the water across all of the acreage, or irrigate fewer acres with closer to full irrigation?

Answer(s)

A

Concentrate the water on fewer acres or on the crop giving the highest economic return. It is best to fully irrigate the acreage that can be fully irrigated with the available water, and let the rest of the area go.
