SummaryIrrigation experiments with wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in clay loam, silty clay loam and the silty clay loam. Contrary to this, irrigation at late jointing, and late jointing and milk stages produced deepest root system in the loam. Roots followed the receding water table. was greatest in the loam. Avoiding irrigation at late jointing stage caused shifting of the zone of peak root density downwards and concentration of roots near water table both in the clay loam and the silty clay… CONTINUE READING
