Abstract: Empirical equations describing infiltration, advance, recession, and opportunity time for infiltration were developed by analysis of inflow-outflow-time measurements recorded during furrow irrigation of sugarcane. The measurements represent field conditions at various sugarcane ages on the Molokai soil series. A concept of relating furrow infiltration as a function of furrow length is presented. The development of equations and tables for use in the design and efficient operation of sugarcane furrow irrigation systems in the Hawaiian Islands is described.
