This study evaluated the effect of different supplemental and conventional irrigation strategies on economical parameters, yield and grain quality characteristics of wheat (Triticum aestivum L., cv. Adana 99) using sprinkler line-source system during 2014 and 2015 seasons in the Mediterranean region. The irrigation strategies were Conventional irrigation (CI), Supplemental irrigation (SI) during flowering (SIF), SI during grain filling (SIG), SI both during flowering and grain filling (SIFG). These strategies were tested under four irrigation levels 100, 75, 50, 25% of crop water requirement, and a rain-fed treatment was included as control.
