  • Alternate-furrow irrigation has been proposed as a method to increase irrigation water use efficiency, increase capture and storage of rainfall during the irrigation season, and decrease deep percolation of water. We hypothesized that less fertilizer leaching would occur if the applied fertilizer were spatially separated from the irrigation water in a furrow irrigation system. A study was conducted on a Fort Collins loam (fine-loamy, mixed, superactive, mesic Aridic Haplustalf) in 1994 and 1995… CONTINUE READING
