dc.description.abstract Over the past decade, Oregon State University Malheur Experiment Station at Ontario, Oregon, has evaluated drip irrigation on potato. We have investigated crop response to drip tape flow rate, bed conformation, drip tape placement with respect to potato rows, microirrigation criteria, and plant population. When compared to furrow irrigation, drip irrigation of potato reduces water use, nitrate leaching, erosion, and deep percolation, while increasing marketable yield. Drip irrigation of potato uses less water than sprinkler irrigation for comparable yield. en_US
