We are starting a market garden on an acre. We have existing infrastructure for flood irrigation (24 inch beds, 12″ furrows). The original plan was to use a combo of overhead and drip. However, to use the conventional drip and overhead would require a pond or large water tank, along with the cost of setting up the irrigation infrastructure. In my irrigation rotation we receive 5 acre inches of water one day a week (24 hrs). My questions: 1. Do you have experience or know of anyone who uses flood irrigation in a market garden context? 2. If so, do you have any thoughts on using flood irrigation in this context?

    Curtis, flood irrigation is pretty common here. The irrigation district runs the irrigation ditch once a week and gates it so you get your water (pretty similar to what Richard seems to be having…) Here is the issue I see with it, rot. We use it on hay fields here, no one uses it for food crops because of the mold and mildew you get with it, not to mention weeds & garbage in the ditches…
