The objective was to investigate the possibility of imposing water stress at particular stages of wheat development without much affecting the final yield. This is important in planning for scheduling irrigation in Egypt to use water in the most economic way. Crops were grown in 1977 and 1978 with two water treatments in each year. Detailed micrometeorological measurements were made. Plant measurements were used to follow the growth and development of the crops and to estimate their final yields. The crop water budgets were estimated from measurements of soil water content.
