The application of irrigation water to agricultural soils, whether by surface flooding or sprinkling, may adversely affect the structure of the surface soil. If this is the case, the distribution of water and nutrients in the soil and consequently the uptake of nutrients by plants and plant growth may be affected by the method of water application.
