The Mississippi River Valley Alluvial Aquifer (MRVAA) is declining precipitously due to irrigation withdrawal for row-crops. The development of scientific irrigation scheduling techniques and for soybean (Glycine max L.) will reduce withdrawal from the MRVAA. The objective of this research was to determine if soybean grain yield, irrigation water use efficiency (IWUE), and net return above irrigation cost could be optimized using a static irrigation threshold or if the irrigation threshold should be changed as a function of plant growth stage.
