Irrigation management is important to optimizing crop yield and sustainability, and irrigation decisions are influenced by rainfall patterns, crop growth stage and soil characteristics. The University of Tennessee has ongoing small plot demonstrations as well as on-farm, field scale research, utilizing best management irrigation strategies. The result of these research and extension effort is irrigation recommendations appropriate for Tennessee conditions (see publications below)
