The models described in the report were developed to aid in the control of irrigation return flow. Field studies tested the possibilities for using the unsaturated soil profile including the crop root zone as a temporary salt reservoir and providing excess water for leaching and salt discharge when desired. Two models were developed for describing flow of water and salt through the soil with extraction of water by evapotranspiration. One model was designed for use as an irrigation management tool while the other model was initially intended to provide a detailed understanding of the water and salt flow through the soil. Timing of irrigation was tested as a management variable.
