AbstractData from four years of irrigation studies with carrots indicate this crop has a rather wide tolerance to varying soil moisture levels as measured by yield and quality of roots. Yields have varied between treatments from 514 to 665 crates per acre. Soil moisture levels ranging from a very wet level (18-20 centibars of tension) to a dry level (75-80 centibars of tension) have shown no significant differences in yield. Only from treatment 5, the very dry schedule, was the yield significantly lower than for all other treatments.
