Abstract
Moisture loss from outdoor tanks of soils which could be protected from rainfall was measured by weight loss. Evaporation accounted for 79% of water loss and transpiration 21% where cotton plants were grown to a height of 10 inches. With bare soil, evaporation was higher from the finer textured soils with the evaporation rates decreasing as the percent sand increased. Placing the B horizon over the A horizon increased evaporation. Mulches of oats straw at the rates of 1, 2, and 3 tons per acre (dry weight) reduced evaporation 33%, 63%, and 80% respectively compared with bare soil. (Author)
