Soil Salinity Accumulation in Orchards with Drip and Micro-Spray Irrigation in Arid Areas of California
Sponsor: DWR and CSU/ARI
A soil salinity accumulation study was conducted to examine the long-term impact of drip and micro irrigation on salinity build-up in orchards, focusing on the salinity concentration pattern across a soil profile. The study assessed the current level of salinity accumulation in orchards irrigated with drip/micro systems and provided information to support recommendations on the most effective and efficient leaching techniques.
