A Case History Study to Document the Effectiveness of Water Use Efficiency Research
In October of 1979, the Office of Water Research and Technology (OWRT) asked state water institutes to assess the effectiveness of OWRT sponsored research and submit proposals to develop documented case history studies. This project is the result of a cooperative proposal developed by the Institutes of the Southern Plains Region.
The objective of the project was to conduct a regional analysis of the effectiveness of water use efficiency research. Due to the wide scope of this field, the study focused on two specific techniques often used together; furrow diking and low energy precision application irrigation.
