Water: The second sweetcorn plot

The soil water potential for the second plot stayed in the wet zone for most of the season (above). The early season rain and the cooler autumn weather towards the end of the season meant that there was no water stress.

This is in contrast to the crop grown with washing machine water which experienced soil water tensions up to 60 kPa just prior to the weekly irrigation (top graph).
