Reclamation Leaching for Salinity Buildup Under Drip/Micro Irrigation of Trees
Sponsor: DWR and CSU/ARI
ITRC conducted a reclamation leaching experiment in a pistachio orchard in order to quantify the leaching water required to remove salts from the effective root zone of trees. This experiment tested a new reclamation leaching technique - multiple lines of low-flow drip tape were used to apply water to the area of salinity accumulation along a tree row.
