The application of manure to cultivated and irrigated soils changes the intake rate of irrigation water when compared to the intake rate of non-manured soils. The paper presents the findings of two years of irrigation study on manured soils. Feedlot manure was applied to and incorporated into a sharpsburg silt loam soil. Four levels of manure were applied and the plots disk plowed to three depths. During 1970 the crops were irrigated three times and during 1971 four times. Water infiltration rates were determined from data of the inflow-outflow method.
