2024 Abstract - USING CONSERVATION TILLAGE AND COVER CROPS TO REDUCE IRRIGATION WATER USE: Conserving soil moisture can reduce water use in irrigated cotton, and it is a key component of improved yield in dryland cotton production. Three years of research in Stoneville, MS has consistently proven that conservation practices (i.e., no-till and strip-till) improved soil moisture throughout the cotton growing season. Soil moisture was increased further when cover crops were added to a system. Improved soil moisture has led to reduced irrigation without a yield penalty.
