Alfalfa hay yield, yield-consumptive use ratio (Y/ETc), and hay price across a range of rainfall and evapotranspiration conditions of the western states is evaluated to determine alfalfa hay water value or benefit. Included is a determination of long-term mean values and variability of yield, Y/ETc ratios, and associated irrigation water values. These are compared with published hay water-use efficiencies, production, and water costs. Available rainfall, reference evapotranspiration ET0 , hay… CONTINUE READING
