In preparing the Rukuhia soil lysimeters it became evident that there was no drainage occurring at the base of the lysimeter and surface ponding was occurring.
Containers (lysimeters) with capacity of 12 L were utilized in the experiment, filled with 10 [dm.sup.3] of soil of the respective treatment, presenting in the base no zero gravel layer (1 kg) and a sand layer.
Many lysimeters also did not always yield samples, indicating that either the soils were not sufficiently wet, despite the relatively heavy rainfall, or that soil heterogeneity affected the performance of the lysimeter as had been previously reported elsewhere by Zotarelli et al.
However, weighing lysimeter is a reliable method for ET measurements but it is seldom used outside of experimental stations [9].
The ETr of the study region was evaluated with a lysimeter measurement scale and a calculation scale via the PM equation.

Therefore, a lysimeter study was planned in to identify high yielding sunflower genotypes which has potential to tolerate salinity stress.
The chemical composition of leachates from lysimeter study was within the range of reported values for landfill leachate.
The study can be used for optimization of the cropping pattern and can further be extended by estimation of crop water requirement using lysimeter in the study area.
