Incorporation of dry-season crops in the lowland production systems of the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB) may provide local smallholder farmers the opportunity to increase household cash income through diversification. However, water availability and lowland rice-growing soil characteristics often limit the yield potential of dry-season crops in rotation with wet-season rice. This work studied the effects of three frequencies of furrow irrigation on the crop performance of dry-season maize (Zea mays L.) and peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) production on lowland rice-growing soils of Cambodia and Laos in terms of biomass, yield and water productivity. The work shows that one of the major challenges of non-rice dry-season production under furrow irrigation on typical LMB lowland soils is poor lateral movement of water in the soil that prevents the complete refilling of the root zone.
