dc.description.abstractSummary. Methods for mulching and water collection around the plant were evaluated to develop an efficient way to grow vegetables where water is scarce. Plastic aprons and gravel mulch produced significantly higher squash yields than plots with no mulch. The plants with plastic performed better than those on gravel. Water conservation seems to be the main factor for increased production. Results indicate vegetable growing is possible under arid conditions with less than 5 inches of water.
