Serial Information: Journal of the Irrigation and Drainage Division, 1961, Vol. 87, Issue 3, Pg. 47-62

Document Type: Journal Paper


Study of physical, agronomic, and economic factors affecting agricultural drainage and land classification; components indicate that only hydraulic conductivity and character of aquifer zone and depth to limiting layers are physically measurable and sufficiently constant to form basis for drainability classification; set of drainability class limit curves have been computed; tentative soil drain-ability rating guide is presented.
