Abstract
Irrigation return flows in the Upper Colorado River Basin carry large salt loads as a result of contact with the saline soils and the marine derived geologic substratum. The Grand Valley of western Colorado is a major contributor to the salinity problems of the basin and is, therefore, a logical region to test the effectiveness of agricultural salinity control alternatives. This study emphasized the implementation of on-farm salinity control alternatives; primarily evaluating irrigation scheduling, furrow irrigation, sprinkler irrigation, and trickle irrigation. Border irrigation was also evaluated, but was not implemented as part of this study. The cost-effectiveness of the various on-farm alternatives in the Grand Valley is summarized and presented in this report.
