Abstract: Each furrow irrigation waterlogs most of the root zone of cotton in cracking clay soils. This deprives the roots of oxygen, they take up less water and nutrients. and this reduces growth and yield. Recent research at Narrabri has measured how much yield is lost through waterlogging, how much can be recovered by the tactical use of foliar applied N fertilizer, and to what extent irrigation management can reduce waterlogging.
