    Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station researcher develops recirculated irrigation


    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station researchers are steadily improving water conservation tactics. They can now grow rice with about half the irrigation water used in levee rice systems.

    Chris Henry, associate professor and water management engineer for the experiment station, the research arm of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, has patented a tailwater recovery system for furrow-irrigated rice, also known as “row rice,” after nearly a decade of research at the Division of Agriculture’s Rice Research and Extension Center near Stuttgart.
