AZdrip II (2009 - )

During the summer of 2009 each oringinal plot was split into two plots to create both an organic and conventional production component. A total of eight
0.31ac (0.12 ha) plots equipped with idependently controlled subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) were established. This facility is now capable of repesenting organic vs conventional production, within two SDI tape configurations, and two replications. Plots still remain large enough to conduction standard farm operations.

The objective of this project is to develop, evaluate, and demonstrate management practices for the sustainable utilization of of organic and conventional subsurface drip irrigation in Arizona, and to distribute this information to growers and other interested parties
