- ... Where furrow irrigation is practiced, the residue from the previous crop must be removed from the soil surface to prevent furrow blockage, resulting in disuniform irrigation. High energy and labor costs have caused some producers to consider burning the residue rather than incorporating it. Thus, a 14-year study was conducted on a clay loam soil (fine, mixed, mesic Torrertic Paleustall) in north T ...

- ... The adaptation of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) to well-drained soil has limited its range of culture. The poor performance of this crop in wet soils has often been attributed to the effects of Phytophthora root rot (PRR). However, excess soil water itself may reduce alfalfa growth. The impact of continuous excess soil water stress (ESWS) and PRR stress (PRRS) and the growth potential after elimina ...
