Case Study #2

Flood Irrigation — Alfalfa

Advantages:
  • No channeling
  • No erosion of borders
SoilSentry™ was applied to an alfalfa field in the Imperial Valley of California, after it was initially watered via sprinklers to germinate the crop and establish the stand. The soil was very light and sandy, very prone to cutting and channeling with the high-velocity water flow applied to the field. Approximately 3.5 to 5 cubic feet of water per second containing SoilSentry was applied to the field directly out of the head ditch. Ultimately, with SoilSentry in place, there were no visible signs of erosion, no channeling between borders, and no erosion on the borders.
