What is it about?

The optimum ridge width for ridges mulched with biodegradable film was 35–36 cm, whereas for ridges mulched with plastic film, it was 36–42 cm.

Why is it important?

The Ridge-furrow rainwater harvesting design should conserve water and improve fodder yields and quality.


High soil water content and high soil temperature in ridge-furrow rainwater harvesting increased fodder crude protein and phosphorus content, but decreased acid detergent fiber and neutral detergent fiber content of fodder.
