Alfalfa has a long taproot that pene-trates more deeply into the soil than crops such as corn or wheat which have more fibrous, shallow roots. Under favorable conditions, alfalfa roots may penetrate over 20 feet deep. This great rooting depth gives alfalfa excellent drought tolerance.

Contributor Names Watkins, Carleton E.,photographer. Alfalfa is an unincorporated community in Deschutes County, Oregon, United States, in the high desert 16 miles (26 km) east of Bend.

Alfalfa was named for the primary forage crop grown there under irrigation. Alfalfa had a post office from until The ranching community has a population of about families.

Alfalfa's day growing season limits the local ranchers to. Crop reduction caused by cryogenesis and drought is a serious and global problem. The environmental stress caused by low temperature and drought during the overwintering stage of forage is the key factor leading to this low yield. In cold and arid grassland, winter irrigation can effectively alleviate the stress of alfalfa during overwintering, improve the survival rate of.

The effect of soil water on quality and yield of various forage crops has been the subject of a considerable amount of research in the past. The optimum irrigation schedule for a given crop depends on many factors, including rooting habits of the plant, water-holding capacity of the soil, peak water use during the growing season, and climatic Author: A.

Mantell, H. Bielorai. A total of 6 established alfalfa fields were subjected to irrigation treatments including normal irrigation (REF), irrigation stopped later (low-risk) in the growing season, and irrigation stopped early (high-risk) in the growing season for 2 consecutive years.

All fields then received consistently full irrigation in the third and final year. Alfalfa has a very high yield potential (5 to 6 tons dry weight per acre per year). Description. Alfalfa is an herbaceous perennial legume that is erect- growing with many leafy stems arising from large crowns at the soil surface.

A mature plant will have multiple stems which can reach the height of inches tall. A column lysimeter study was initiated to determine the potential crop water use from shallow groundwater by alfalfa as a function of groundwater quality and depth to groundwater.

alfalfa’s long growing season and deep root zone. End-of-season irrigation for alfalfa is important. The profile soil water should be in the readily plant-available water range when the crop goes dormant for the winter to reduce the chances of winter kill. Irrigation Timing Alfalfa is sensitive to water stress at the time of harvest, and.The evapotranspiration (El) for a specified reference crop characterizes the rate at which water, when readily available within the root zone, is evaporated from the plant and soil surfaces in response to climatic conditions.

Crop ET (ETc) for a given crop can be computed from reference ET and an appropriate ET crop coefficient (Kc).Cited by: The economical irrigation of alfalfa in Sacramento Valley / (Berkeley, Cal.: Agricultural Experiment Station, ), by S.
