Treatment that received water between July 26 and August 16 produced the highest yields in this experiment. The average yield for these plots was 112 bushels per acre compared to a yield of 87 bushels per acre for treatments that did not get water during this critical period. Although the 3-week interval irrigation produced the highest grain sorghum yield (122 bulacre), one irrigation on August 9 yielded a very respectable 108 bulacre. Apparently irrigation timing is just as important as frequency of irrigation for the production of grain sorghum.
