AN ECONOMIC INTERPRETATION OF IMPACT OF PHENOLOGICALLY TIMED IRRIGATION ON CORN YIELD

An economic production function was derived in an analysis of water application to corn by phonological time periods.

Several yearsÂ’ data for three locations were utilized. The results tend to confirm the conceptual models and previous work in this type of analysis. Certain periods of growth were more critical than others.
