Furrow irrigation erosion redistributes topsoil within
fields and causes serious topsoil losses from farms. Erosion
occurs on the upper portions of fields where the
furrow streams are largest and the energy greatest. The
furrow stream must be large enough at the head end of
the furrow to supply sufficient water for infiltration over
the entire furrow length.
