This presentation will help growers, consultants, and other practitoners in the potato industry with mid to late season irrigation management. Recent weather patterns have resulted in more frequent occurrence of above-normal crop water use years. As a result, it appears that the probability of higher than normal water use this year has increased. If this situation develops after planting, options for using a marginal-capacity irrigation system to maintain low water stress conditions for the rest of the year are significantly reduced. This presentation provides suggestions for in-season equipment modification, and additional water management options to obtain the highest yield and quality of potatoes with less than adequate water.
