Farmers should track aquifer saturated thickness to plan crops and irrigation

Hydrograph 2

Groundwater-dependent growers should establish monitoring networks early in the water year to quantify saturated thickness before the growing season. A direct relation exists between the saturated thickness of an aquifer and the groundwater volume available for extraction constrained by regulation and/or principles of sustainability. Under natural conditions, the water table of an unconfined aquifer will… Read more »
