A farming unit in an intensively cropped, furrow irrigated agricultural area of the Boise Valley in southwestern Idaho was instrumented for two cropping seasons to measure the quantities of water entering and leaving the area. Surface and groundwater samples taken from the unit were analyzed for nutrient and solids content. A computer program was developed and used to compute a nutrient, total solids and water budget for the unit based on water measurements, climatic measurements, cropping data and chemical analyses.
