An increased understanding of corn responses to intermittent water deficits is a prerequisite to achieving goals of maintaining production and protecting the environment in humid regions where supplemental irrigation is used. A rain shelter was employed to impose periodic drought on corn at various growth stages in a field environment in Michigan, and whole plant responses were examined.
