Abstract

About 3.7 million acres are surface irrigated in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. In 1988 about 506,000 acres were in potato production. In recent years there has been a substantial shift away from furrow to sprinkler irrigation of Russet Burbank potatoes. The two main factors causing this shift have been soil erosion and production quality.
