Among corn cereals, it is the most efficient plant for the production of dry produce. Maximum water use per plant (ETM) varies between 500-850 mm / season. The water requirement in maize can be estimated by observing curls and stalks on the leaves. Watering of the plant should be done as follows:
- Watering once every 4 to 8 days before the first cultivation when the plant is 10-15 cm (4-5 leaves);
- Watering once every 4 to 8 days before the second cultivation and bottoming when the plant is 40-60 cm (8-10 leaves);
- Dispose of the scalp (one week before the skull comes out);
- Once it is known that the body enters milk, it is watered once.
The most suitable irrigation method for maize is rain-based irrigation or pressure irrigation systems. The silage method can be used without irrigation or drip irrigation systems as the silos for the silos are dense.
Due to the rapid development of the maize, especially from the 6th week, the top fertilization is not possible in the form of 2-3 parts as in other field plants.
