A study was conducted during 1998 to 1999, in Turkey, to determine the best irrigation frequency and water-yield relationship for dent corn (Zea mays L. indentata) irrigated by furrow irrigation system under semi-arid conditions. Water was applied to corn as 100, 90, 80 and 70% of evaporation from Class A Pan corresponding to 2-, 4-, 6-, and 8-day irrigation frequencies, respectively. In both the years, maximum grain yield was observed at application of 10% deficit irrigation and 4-day irrigation frequency, while minimum yield was at application of 30% deficit irrigation and 8-day irrigation frequency. Total water-use efficiency (TWUE), irrigation water-use efficiency (IWUE) and crop response factor (ky) values were determined. Yield characteristics were affected negatively by 30% deficit irrigation and 8-day irrigation frequency.
