Abstract : The shift to continuous cropping after deforestation can modify soil water capacity; thus supplemental irrigation may be part of a farmer's strategy to secure or diversify production. Supplemental irrigation promotes adoption of soil conservation techniques, reduces operating costs, and has the potential to increase income. Our investigation focused on on-farm reservoirs because such programs are widespread in Southeast Asia and because some of the first attempts at supplemental irrigation were made in Central Java.
