Synopsis

Synopsis

Hay yields from native wet meadows increased with an increase in the length of continuous wild-flood irrigation, as long as the water was 5 inches or less above the soil surface. Water levels of 7.5 inches above the surface were detrimental to yields if they persisted 50 days or longer. Delaying irrigation 2 weeks at the beginning of the season and extending it 2 weeks at the end increased yields by .25 ton/acre.
