On a priori grounds, long fallowing should cause the largest decline in soil organic C, especially when this is accompanied by conventional cultivation; lucerne should have the largest positive effect as this was the most vegetatively productive of all the plant species used in these experiments (Holford 1980, 1989).
In addition, the Water Authority will pay any actual socioeconomic impacts associated with the 10-year fallowing program above $20 million.
A hidden cost of frequent summer fallowing in semiarid environments is soil organic matter (SOM) decline and soil erosion, primarily wind erosion.
