Abstract

An alternate method for analyzing the effectiveness of wind erosion protection in asparagus fields of the San Joaquin Delta peat regions substantiated previous results proving the value of the practice of interplanting barley in every row, and showed success with alternate row planting mainly when done perpendicular to the critical winds.
