The effects of irrigation and furrow spacing on the plant water relations in sunflowers were determined in a field experiment conducted in Egypt during 1999-2001. The treatments included irrigation until the water reaches 2.5 (I1), 5 (I2) and 7.5 cm above the soil surface (I3) and 60 and 120 cm furrow spacing with 1 (D1), 2 (D2) or 3 (D3) plants per furrow. Irrigation water was highest D1, regardless of the irrigation treatments. Crop yield was highest with D3. Water use efficiency was highest with I1 in combination with D3.
