The method for collecting lysimeters has been described elsewhere (McLeod et al.
The sowing was performed on 01 December 2015, whose soil material was initially placed in field capacity, placing five seeds per lysimeter at a depth of 2 cm, and equidistantly distributed.
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.
Monthly measured ETr of alfalfa grown in lysimeters for the study area.
Tension lysimeters (vacuum applied) were sampled for soil water during long irrigation events and dormant season storms when the soil was saturated, and zero-tension lysimeters (no vacuum), were sampled for leachate during four-hour irrigation events when the soil was unsaturated.
Characterizing groundwater use by safflower using lysimeters. Agricultural Water Management., 60: 59-71.
Septic tank, lysimeters, piezometers, and the estuary were sampled every two months during February-October 2011 (five times).
During 2010 and 2011 seasons, soil water samples used for the leaching calculations were collected from lysimeters [24, 25].
(2009) demonstrated that this was feasible by investigating the performance of a wheat crop in lysimeters under a combination of surface and sub-irrigation, each with 3 different levels of salinity.
