Abstract: Two field experiments were conducted in Nov. 1985 and Dec. 1986 to investigate the effects of irrigation regime and a gel-conditioner commercially called Jalma (containing 24% humic acids, and 3.8% polysaccharides) on wheat response. The first experiment consisted of two irrigation regimes: wet (14 irrigations, 50 mm each) and dry (7 irrigations, 50 mm each) and four dry Jalma rates: 0.0, 0.05, 0.1 and 0.2% (2.4 tonne/ha), each replicated three times in a split plot design. The experiment was repeated in the second season without addition of Jalma. The wet regime gave highly significant (P = 0.01) taller plants and heavier kernels and thus resulted in significantly higher grain and biological yields than the dry regime. With the exception of plant height in the second season, Jalma had no significant effect on wheat growth or yield.
