Station one and two in the irrigation tour were the border strip and furrow. For these stations our lab irrigated the field and measured the advance of the flooding throughout the border strip and furrow every five minutes. Once the water reached the end of the border strip or furrow our lab measured the recession of the water in five minute increments until the water had been absorbed into the field. See graph for data.
