Two years ago I had plenty of rain for the health of my canes, (fall 
red) but noticed that rainfall triggered ripening.  Last year, I 
irrigated fairly heavily, and got an earlier (and larger) crop.  This 
year, the canes were nearly destroyed by squirrels climbing through them 
to get at the ripening berries, so it's hard to say, but I did get an 
early crop which I attribute to irrigation.  (But a short crop. . . I 
need to train my kittens.)
