Title: Water Use of Field Crops in Eastern North Dakota
Author: Ennen, M. J.; Bauder, J. W.
Description: Historically, solid-seeded small grain crops have dominated production in the northern Great Plains. However, recent developments in variety selection and crop breeding have brought about an increase in the acreage planted to other crops. Several row crops have become popular. These include sugar beet , soybean, corn, sunflower, and dry edible beans. Efficient agricultural land management requires an understanding of crop physiology, seasonal climatic conditions, plant water and nutrient requirements, and soil resources and capabilities. It is necessary to also understand the interactions of these characteristics and to adopt cultural practices that maximize efficiency of resource use.
