Abstract: Irrigation scheduling helps in maintaining optimal soil moisture and conserving water. In this paper, we simulate corn yields for alternative irrigation schedules under varying well capacities and soil moisture levels. The simulated yields are then used to generate probability distributions of net returns, which are evaluated using stochastic dominance.
