Abstract

Strategic irrigation of barley was demonstrated to have a positive influence on yield, rooting depth and distribution in vertic, duplex soils. Improved understanding of root-soil interactions can be used to develop more effective irrigation to increase yields and water-use efficiency of grain crops in these hydraulically complex soils.
