An inventory of all the different kinds of soils in many Oregon counties is available. These inventories were made starting in the 1970’s by soil scientists of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Soil Conservation Service in ...
This publication discusses irrigation scheduling of potatoes using crop evapotranspiration and/or soil water tension.
PAM is a synthetic water-soluble polymer composed of molecules of acrylamide. PAM binds soil particles together, causing them to settle out and not be carried away in runoff water. This prevents soil loss and can improve water...
