A method for optimizing the irrigation schedule is presented. When the response surface, generated by "experimenting" with the crop simulation models is concave (convex), an optimal solution can be found. The process is iteratively repeated till convergence is achieved. Corn irrigation scheduling is demonstrated, with soil moisture levels as control variables.
