The evaluation of irrigated corn production requires crop water production functions which are time and location specific. This analysis evaluated irrigated and dryland corn production from 1984-1993 in Brookings County. The CERES-Maize crop simulation model generated agronomic data which was representative of Brookings County. Crop budgets were created to establish production costs associated with the study area. Net returns for each of the production methods were compared.
