Seven years of irrigation of sweet corn grown continuously and in rotation resulted in increased bulk density and lowered aggregate stability of soil and in increased runoff of rainfall. These effects persisted over winter after cessation of water application and were measureable prior to the first irrigation the following season even though as much as 36 inches of rainfall intervened.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
