The discussed paper deals with the quite interesting topic of design and management of subsurface drip irrigation (SDI), with the aim to identify the appropriate depth at which to install driplines to avoid wetting the soil surface. The study proposes the results of simulations, obtained with the well-known HYDRUS 2D/3D model version 2.x, and considering three different irrigation management strategies applied on alfalfa crop cultivated in two different soil types in Holtville, California.
