Conjunctive and exclusive use of shallow groundwater for irrigation of spring wheat
The use of drainwater for irrigation is a viable technology both for improving overall irrigation efficiency and for protecting water quality by reducing the mass output of salts and trace elements from irrigated areas. This was demonstrated in a field study at NewIands Agricultural Research Center in Fallon, NY by growing spring wheat (Triticum aestivum) under four irrigation water treatments. The four treatments were: 1) the exclusive use of canal water applied during the day; 2) the exclusive use of drainwater applied during the day; 3) the exclusive use of drainwater applied during the night; ...
