Abstract In the United States rice (Oryza sativa L.) is entirely flood irrigated. Delaying the application of the floodwater beyond the recommended time is practiced by some Arkansas producers and may (with supplemental rainfall) potentially reduce the water inputs required to produce a crop. Water stress, however, may affect root growth characteristics which could impact fertility management decisions relative to continuous flood culture. Therefore a field study was initiated to identify the… CONTINUE READING
