A study was conducted in New South Wales, Australia, to determine a reliable way to schedule irrigations for cotton under drip irrigation. Crop water use was calculated using daily evapotranspiration data from a weather station and a crop factor. The saving in water was not enough to pay for the reduction in yield. It was most profitable to irrigate with the aim of achieving maximum yield rather than saving water.
