Population, Growth Rate, and Maturity of Vegetable Crops in Relation to Soil Salinity and Texture Under Sprinkler and Furrow Irrigation

  1. Frank E. Robinson and
  2. Orval D. McCoy2



Sprinkler irrigation as compared to furrow irrigation prevented surface salt accumulation which in turn led to higher plant populations. The sandiest soil produced a higher population of carrots and onions. Higher populations led to smaller average size plants. The driest irrigation treatment afforded better protection against onion bolting in early plantings. Variability in maturity of cabbage and lettuce was predicted by periodic dry matter sampling, In the sandier soil, the maturity of lettuce and cabbage was delayed 2 weeks.
